Genuine Marx

One of the few podcasts that honestly takes its Marxist beliefs and analysis seriously. This is the only left podcast not afraid to question liberalism’s contradictions with Marxist values. Two keen intellects

There’s There Here

What’s left knows what’s up, and what’s more, they’re bold about it. I set out seeking a podcast that featured hosts with theory chops doing serious contemporary political engagement (beyond typical reactionary bull), and Im happy to report I found exactly what I was looking for here.

My only complaint is that I got through the backlog too quickly. I would love a required reading list.

Sad

I was so excited to find a podcast analyzing politics from a materialist perspective I signed up for their patreon right away, but eventually realized the hosts are too far removed from the US working class and political organizing to be making the commentary that they do. Which should have been obvious to me considering their class backgrounds and private school/Ivy League educations. And because of their educational backgrounds, I also mistakenly assumed they were familiar with scholarly things like Marxist feminism, Marx/Engels, or even the many successful proletariat movements that strategically utilized identity politics long before PMC liberals hijacked it. But the more I listened, the less convinced I became. Also, even if they have no personal experience with the working class, there is plenty of statistics and studies they could read so they could understand what they are trying to talk about with authority. Incredibly disappointing.
