Along with Red May and History Against Misery we interview communist collective Chuang about their new book the Social Contagion (sort of). Expanding on the 2020 essay about the origins of the pandemic in China, the anonymous collective living in and outside of China uses on-the-ground interviews, reports and analysis to show the fragile reality between China's authoritarian Marxist facade.

Meme Militant Meg and Andy read the essay Memes Without End by Adrian Wohlleben, in which he argues that elements of recent uprisings like the Yellow Vests of France, turnstile hopping of Chile, the umbrella-wielding frontliners of Hong Kong were memes that help them spread in a way that traditional social movements cannot.
Can we meme revolution into reality? Or is it impossible to force a meme? We discuss Richard Dawkins, Susan Blackmore, Darwin, and more!

Notes from the great impasse.... the boys are back to take you for a wild ride from supply chains, to the Great Resignation, to culture wars, to cryptocurrency, to NFTs to terminal crisis.
Why is nothing working and why does everything feel bad? It's the decadence of capitalism as a functioning social system and Sean and Matt explain why.
Be sure to listen to the end as Matt, like a similarly bearded guy before him, reaches into the misty depths of theology to try to analogize the impersonal domination of the value form. Ask yourself: is capital in fact the DEVIL? The answer might surprise you.

Jamie is joined by pal-of-the-show Aaron Thorpe (@paradoomer) to discuss Lizzie Borden's 1983 feminist sci-fi film "Born In Flames." Ten years after a "war of liberation" that established a social democratic government in the United States, things are still not great for women, especially queer, black, working class women! In a story that remains relevant to this day, the film follows the radical organizers of the Women's Army as they fight for true equality.
Outro song - "Born In Flames," Red Krayola

Greetings, Antifada super soldiers! This week, we're cross-posting an episode of Jamie's new show Everybody Loves Communism, wherein she and co-host Jorge do the reading so you don't have to. In this edition, Jamie and Jorge begin their mini-series on the Paris Commune as a prelude to chapter 3 of Lenin's "State and Revolution," because you need to know about it to understand that chapter. It's also just an important event in the history of class struggle; Marx called it "the dawn of the great social revolution which will liberate mankind from the regime of classes forever"(!)
The content of the episode draws from Massacre: The Life and Death of the Paris Commune by John Merriman.
