    Stockton to Malone #3: Making Sense of a Murder in Chicago

    Stockton to Malone #3: Making Sense of a Murder in Chicago

    RL interviews Chantel Johnson, whose brother Richie was one of the hundreds of young black men murdered in gun violence in Chicago in recent years. She and RL discuss the ties between violence and austerity in the city, the feeling of "conspiracy" against Richie and other poor black men like him in her neighborhood, and how anger at inequality in the city has become part of her grieving process.

    Episode 1: Nevertheless, She Persisted

    Episode 1: Nevertheless, She Persisted

    Welcome to the first episode of Stockton to Malone, a podcast from Jacobin magazine. For the first episode, ahead of protests and counterprotests at Planned Parenthood clinics around the country and forthcoming attacks on abortion rights under President Donald Trump, hosts RL Stephens and Micah Uetricht interview Judy Wittner.

    Before Roe v. Wade in 1973, abortion was illegal throughout most of the country. In 1969, Wittner, who was involved in the feminist movement in Chicago, discovered she was pregnant and wanted an abortion. She sought out assistance from doctors around the Chicago area but was turned away. Eventually, she turned to an illegal feminist abortion service, the Jane Collective, and ended up receiving an abortion on her kitchen table in Evanston, Illinois.

    We sat down with Judy in that same kitchen to talk with her about that experience and the state of reproductive rights today.

Beetlejuice's dad ,

Very good listen

They articulate ideas I have in my head that I find difficult to express, plus it's funny and not didactic in any way, all of which had me subscribe

Heady stuff, unpopular opinions and...fun.

These folks are fun and I learned something about socialism. Keep it up! This could be somethiung beautiful.

Like Heben and Tracy but hella Marxist

This is the only leftist podcast I've found that covers serious matters while still allowing for fun. I was a fan pretty much off the rip.
