    From the archives: Beyond Economism with Nancy Fraser

    From the archives: Beyond Economism with Nancy Fraser

    Dan is playing catch up. Here's a fav interview from the archives: critical theorist Nancy Fraser on how a total analysis of capitalism requires analyzing capitalism's totality, including socially reproductive work that makes possible the world that capitalism exploits. This is painfully relevant today as people everywhere do the work of staying at home and social distancing to beat this pandemic while capitalists reap the rewards of the world's reproduction.

Can you afford not to listen?

Episodes are way too long

This is a great, informative podcast. I just wanted to comment that I think the episodes are way too long and as a listener I zone out probably 30% through since there is so much information. Something to think about.

The Dig is a treasure trove of insight and wisdom

Dan clearly spends a ridiculous amount of time preparing for his guests, and it pays off as the best interviews I've ever listened to. Simply the finest analysis that exists in the podcast-verse.
