Worthwhile and smart
Worthwhile for US listeners. Ash Sarkar is amazing.
So worth a proper listen!
I don’t have the time to listen to many podcasts regularly, but I cherry-pick and there have been a few from this cast that I listened to and thoroughly enjoyed. These are learned discussions with intelligent questions asked, and the one on automation and the future of work is something I was deeply interested in academically and found so enriching to listen to. The questions and answers depart from the usual book promotions or pat answers to think more seriously about the politics and social implications.
I’ll be returning to this network to find more, taking socialist thinking seriously.
Socialism in the UK
