In this long awaited Antifada x Trillbillies crossover, Jamie speaks with Tom Sexton (@tomsexton), Tarence Ray (@tarenceray) and Tanya Turner (@auntiebernice) of Trillbilly Workers Party (@thetrillbillies) about their media project, Kentucky's recent election, and how they became dyed-in-the-wool radicals and electoral skeptics. Also: jobs vs. environmentalism, the pitfalls of the "just transition" program, and an update on Penny the Pony!
Outro music: Erik Petersen - For an Old Kentucky Anarchist

In this special episode of The Antifada, Sean KB is joined by fellow building tradesmen Billy and John to do a little workers inquiry on themselves.
We discuss our own work histories and how we became radicalized through historical events and our experiences on the job. We poke holes in the JD Vance 'white working class' mythos that sees cultural regression as the wellspring of Trumpism. Lastly, we talk about the structures we've encountered in our particular unions and how the working class might overcome the provincialism and conservatism of business unionism.
Outro: Billy Bragg - Which Side Are You On?

Matt Christman and Sean KB bring our story of suburbia up to the present moment, when the periphery is in crisis and urban areas are suffering late-stage gentrification: How was Los Angeles the archetypal American city? Who developed suburbia and why? Which class interests are upheld by the primacy of real estate in American political economy? And whither suburban life in the 21st century?
All this and more along with an analysis of that class fraction everyone's talking about these days: the PrOfEsSiOnAL MaNaGeRiAL CLaSs!

We celebrate MISCHIEF NIGHT with the scariest show on the internet: MINION DEATH CULT. Hosts Anthony Edwards and Tony Boswell find the scariest, most derange, and dumbest boomer posts online and read them slow enough to truly grasp their inanity. After sharing some dumb Halloween stories, we look at an evangelical plot to infiltrate costume shops, commemorate last years' Nov 4 Antifa supersoldier revolution, recall the Infowars hit piece on Jamie earlier this year, and close out with some Tim Pool Joker-posting.
Closing song: Marilyn Manson - This is Halloween

Matt and Sean dive into the historical materialist trenches once more!
On this HIAW, we address suburbia and its discontents: How has the unique social geography of the United States affected its political and economic development? How are class relations reflected in the built environment? Why did the suburbs arise as a unique solution to social crisis in the post-war era? And what sort of mentalities and ideologies arose out of these milieux?

Shyam Khanna, editor of Commune mag, joins us for a sneak peek into issue #4 and a breakdown of Saturday's Bernie Sanders rally from an ultraleft wrecker POV. Josh Strawn, half of darkwave duo Azar Swan, also joins us for a discussion of his band's new record, what the kids are listening to these days, fascism and music, and why Billy Joel has better politics than Nick Cave. The first of at least two Halloween episodes!
Catch Azar Swan live at Jamie's benefit show for El Comedor this coming Friday, October 25th at Trans Pecos in NYC! Tickets here.

The first episode of Andy's newest side project focusing on Latin American politics and history, Talkin' 'Tina!
BreadTuber BAD EMPANADA joins us to talk about the upcoming elections in Argentina that will return Kirchernismo to power after four years of Mauricio Macri's neoliberal buffoonery, but can left-populist Peronism walk the country back from the brink of economic collapse, or will there be a new insurrection like in 2000? And who do the Posadists support?
After that we discuss the life and politics of Che Guevara and the claims that he was a blood-soaked homophobic murderer. We talk about the excesses of the Cuban government, the extent of Che's role in them, and some of our favorite stories of the revolution and after.
