    The second of Dan’s two-part interview with Piero Gleijeses on his book Visions of Freedom: Havana, Washington, Pretoria, and the Struggle for Southern Africa, 1976–1991. This is the story of Cuba’s military defense of the Angolan government against a US and South Africa-backed effort to overthrow the People’s Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA).

Fascinating material week after week

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed so many episodes of The Dig thanks to fascinating interviews with really well informed subjects and a very well prepared host in the form of Daniel Denvir. As a labor radical and novice Marxist I’ve learned so much about the world and about the history of labor movements and revolutionary movements around the world. It’s a treasure to have this perspective in the midst of so much media driven almost entirely by monetary interests. I enjoy the new episodes and digging into the vaaaaaast archive when I need something new.

Favorite Podcast

The Dig is a treasure. I have learned so much from this podcast over the years. All the episodes are worth listening! I keep returning to my favorite interviews and learn something else with each time listening. Daniel does an extraordinary job with the interviews- he is always well prepared and is an extraordinarily engaged interviewer.

My favorite podcast

I learn so much from Daniel. It’s the type of podcast where I’ll share an episode with someone, we’ll both listen, and then have a conversation digesting it and sharing thoughts. Wonderfully accessible, even in fields where I don’t have any background - while still demonstrating cutting edge analysis in my domain expertise. I am always recommending this to friends.
