A Sensible Viewpoint

This podcast offers a sensible (no pun intended) alternative perspective to capitalism. Kevin gives plenty of insight to the current undergoings of capitalism, as well as what socialism actually is - after listening to this podcast (and reading various works), I can say I’m better off after finding this show.

There’s no hyperbole, no fear mongering and Kevin is honest about what socialism is and has been - ‘sensible’ is an apt name for this show.

5/5
