Jamie and Andy interview three contributors to Commune Magazine's Summer issue. First we talk to Marxish Rock Critic Joshua Clover on Lil Nas X and its transgression of the color line. Then we chat with Michelle O'Brien about the Queer Liberation march for the 50th anniversary of Stonewall, family abolition, and what life will look like on the Queer Commune. Finally we talk to Commune editor Chloe Watlington on climate change, personal tragedy and mourning, and the existential need for communism.

Who better to pummel neoliberal common wisdom than the tribune of the swoletariat, @prettybadlefty? We speak with Chad Vigorous about his ethnographic studies on white people music, the infuriating/depressing debate about what is or isn't a goddamn CONCENTRATION CAMP, and liberalism's tendency toward rhetorical chicanery rather than actually addressing the issues surrounding class and race in US society.

In the aftermath of Sophie's brutal Twitter ratioing (The Night of the Dirty Legs), Andy decided we should revisit the classic essay "Washing... or Brainwashing" from Crimethinc's in/famous 2000 book Days of War, Nights of Love. We discover that nobles are savage, washing your landlords' blood off your shirt is bourgeois and that deodorant is capitalism negging you.
Mostly we are just sober and dumb and talking about eating human shit.

Sophie Weiner, night-editor of Splinter News and displaced poster, was back in NYC for a bit. We got her in studio to talk about politics in Australia and other oddities... for example, something good happened in Albany for once! We were also gifted with another lovely morsel of #content from media power couple Bari & Bill Weiss-Maher.
Mostly we had a fun discussion about electronic dance music (kids these days call it 'the raving') and how socialists can organize within the scene while inspiring our politics with the libratory potentials of it. All of this, of course, is anticipation of this week's publication of Sophie and Zoe Beery's new anti-capitalist dance music zine... PLURletariat. Enjoy!

Ben Burgis, author of 'Give Them an Argument' from Zero Books, stops by the studio to discuss the use and abuse of logic: why we can't cede this terrain to right-wing ghouls; how we can better argue for a better world; and how Karl Marx could be the messiest bitch of the 19th century while remaining logically sound.
Plus, the return of This Week in Musk where we trace the travails of our century's most insufferable ruling class twit. Enjoy!
