    Merry Christmas from Plague Island

    Merry Christmas from Plague Island

    Merry crimbles from the plague colony  :p

    Siyang and I did one of our random last minute episodes, lots of gold in here. 

    We have a feelings check, talk about air raid shelters, corona, capitalism and the dialectics of Christmas.  

    I drank way too much coffee beforehand and go on several tangents.

    Taking What's Ours - Intro to ACORN

    Taking What's Ours - Intro to ACORN

    We talked with our new friend & comrade Jack (@_jackhy) about ACORN Manchester & ACORN Liverpool.

    Jack is the newly elected communications officer for ACORN Liverpool (and Siyang is a big fan of his tweets)

    This episode kind of functions as our introduction to ACORN.

    Towards the end we talk about the red specter of the Northern republic; the peoples commissar Andy Burnham; 

    & anti-maskism and the severely legitimate distrust of the government in Liverpool.

    Enjoy worm that's an order. 

    Stay safe, eat out, communize the world 2020 peace

    Marxist Economics & Coronavirus: an interview with Professor Edmund Hardy

    Marxist Economics & Coronavirus: an interview with Professor Edmund Hardy

    We sat down for interview with 'the don' Edmund Hardy, to discuss global capitalism, marxist economics, and the unfolding Corona-crash. 

    In the intro we chit chat about everyone favourites app Next Door. 

    Around 31:07 is the interview if you wanna skip the ice cream and move straight to the brain food. 

    Lot's of fireworks were going off in and around Edmunds house during the interview, which adds a certain je ne sais quoi to the mix.

    Orgainising educators in a pandemic: an interview with teacher and NEU organiser Vik Chechi-Ribeiro

    Orgainising educators in a pandemic: an interview with teacher and NEU organiser Vik Chechi-Ribeiro

    Siyang and I did a long form interview with Vik ChechI-Ribeiro, about his latest article in Tribune:  

    https://tribunemag.co.uk/2020/09/how-teachers-organised-in-a-pandemic. 

    Defo read the article then have a listen, as both article and podcast cover really useful stuff: like the new trade unionism,  and organising to win in workplaces like schools. 

    The interview starts around 11:36 if you wanna skip there and avoid our corona chat intro, although we do discuss rick-rolling (it's back baby and it's still good awooooooo).

    Also we did have some audio issues - no I won't explain them - and no I won't apologize. We do this for free out of love, and a lack of alternatives - sicko mode inc. was not built on trust, but on revulsion. If you experience any audio discomfit that's part and parcel my friend.

Maovadi ,

It’s good

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