The purpose of this show is to educate people on revolutionary strategy, theory, tactics, and analysis using popular culture. While there are many other podcasts and shows discussing politics and popular culture, there doesn't seem to be many that actually talk about and break down the mechanisms of how social change, let alone revolution, is carried out. I believe that my 10 years of experience as a political organizer and educator, along with my lifelong nerdom, will allow me to create useful content that can hopefully inspire and support those engaged in changing the world.
