Very Educational

I love what you guys are doing. I especially enjoyed the most recent episode about how it would be like to live in the Soviet Union. It’d be great if you guys could do an episode about living in socialist Yugoslavia or anarchist Catalonia, as these leftist governments are not so widely talked about. Keep up the good work!

Confused ......

The show leaves some valid historical reference of the downside of communism
