The old forms of the left are moribund the new forms are stupid. We're making a podcast that talks about the need to organize pessimism and develop a Marxist salvage project that might be able to cobble something together in time to save the world...A clean, honest, and unsentimental melancholy is required; we've cultivated one and would like to share it with you.

Incredible podcast

Very fun, does a great job at explaining Marxist theory while making you feel less alienated for a brief hour.

Would be cool if they set up a discord for their Patreon

Revolutionary Pessimism

or maybe it was revolutionary melancholy? I forget. It doesn’t matter, really, because the insightful analysis from the hosts is so good, so sharp, so revolutionary-minded, that you almost forget just how bad things currently are under capital’s yolk. If there’s any chance of a more equitable tomorrow, it’s from folks like the RC hosts ✊
