Politics and theory on the go

I find this podcast much less dense than reading theory, but it still helps me understand socialist principles as well as what’s happening in the world. Keep it up! The only suggestion I would give would be to add some musical interludes like in Behind the News, because this is a long pod.

Good stuff

Super thoughtful. Feels like I’m in a college class but I can listen to it on 1.5x speed. Legit
