    Episode 7: Live from New York - it's the Weinersance!

    Episode 7: Live from New York - it's the Weinersance!

    Just as David Bowie did some of his greatest work in Berlin, this is our groundbreaking New York episode - with our special guest star US class war correspondent Jihye. We talk about what’s going down in New York - analyse how it got to be the pandemic ridden neoliberal metropolitan capital of the world - and repeatedly allude to the Anthony Weiner sexting scandal.

    Episode 6: Sicko Mode Video Club - Stuart Hall on Marx and the legacies of Marxism

    Episode 6: Sicko Mode Video Club - Stuart Hall on Marx and the legacies of Marxism

    This is the first ever ‘video club’ edition of Sicko Mode, where we watch Stuart Hall's 1983 television documentary ‘Spectres of Marx’, which is under an hour, and you can watch it on youtube here:

     https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d6TZi9w6j-A&fbclid=IwAR3AdP7roW9rzEcoa8QxNBKBVNhtiSNYBJlfkNpQc-9nGe9Jyo_YcajSK78

    We open up by talking about the ‘Great Lockdown’ recession modelled by the IMF, and do some other assorted analysis of the juncture between economics and Covid-19, but then we have a roving discussion about Hall’s entertaining, short documentary. Make sure to watch the doc, then listen to the episode. Although actually we are also very entertaining, so you could just listen to our witty banter and skip the doc, but the doc is less than hour so maybe just watch it.

Maovadi ,

It’s good

The hosts are quite pleasant and funny. I enjoy listening and an endorsement by Vijay Prashad is enough for me.
