Sean is joined by special guest Adam H Johnson (@adamjohnsonnyc), writer and host of the excellent Citations Needed podcast, to discuss the political economy of mass media, how consent is manufactured and the myriad ways in which the capitalist press is complicit even in a declining US empire.

Then, with some extra time, Sean gives a briefing of several recent strikes and what they might mean for organized labor going forward.
