    Every get the feeling that YouTube is a cesspool of corporate propaganda and right-wing nuttery? You're not wrong. Thankfully, the left is fighting back in myriad ways.

    We are joined by content-craftspersons The Serfs, Non-Compete and Nick from Means Media to discuss how online got so fashy, what we can do to compete with Prager U (and a million other jerks) on the Tube and how left media can break from our capitalist overlords with new cooperative platforms.

    Good friend and all-around badass Tash rolls through once again to talk about her forthcoming essay collection from Verso Books, 'Being Numerous: Essays On Non-Fascist Life.' We discuss anti-fascism in theory and practice, the promise and pitfalls of radical love, and the role of capital and the state in ratifying and distorting our desires, and whatever the opposite of "enforced monogamy" is. We also try not to have a take on the Notre Dame fire, but ultimately cannot help ourselves. C'est la vie!

    This weekend was the biennial blast that is the Historical Materialism (@histmat) Conference NYC. Naturally, we took the opportunity to attend some panels and interview old friends and new. Several we interviewed tipsy in an NYC public school and others we talked to rather drunk at the @commune_mag loft down by the railroad tracks.

    George Ciccariello-Maher (@ciccmar) on the coup in Venezuela

    Jasper Bernes (@outsidadicator) on communization

    Michelle O'Brien (NYC Trans Oral History Project) on abolishing the bourgeois family

    Callum Cant (callumcant1) & Jamie Woodcock (@jamie_woodcock) on workers inquiry, militant unionism in the UK and V I D E O G A M E S

    Malav Kanuga (@CommonNotions) on why Niral Shah is #canceled

    Shyam Khanna (@dollarpizza1) on the joys of sects

    After a quick lesson on Fugazinomics, we talk with Parisian Rona Lorimer, author of the Yellow Vest Diaries from the new issue Commune Magazine, about the origins of the Gilet Jaunes movement, its politics and potentials.

    [Note: in the intro Sean confuses the Provos (Irish Republicans) with the Ulster Volunteer Forces (anti-Catholic, loyalist murderers) like an idiot. Big apologies to all on the screw up!]

    01:31:16

    Third-time (!) guest @niralshah jumps in to help us bang through some recent cancellations: Rachel Maddow, Barbara Streisand, the International Socialist Org... and Great Britain as a viable/sane bourgeois democratic state.

    Since we couldn't get any limeys to come on and talk UK politics, we had to do our best to Yank-splain what the hell is happening on the other side of the pond:

    Why is a Brexit? What's at stake in this slow-motion train wreck for Corbyn and the left? How come - as Jordan Peterson would say - the whole thing is crazy? As usual, it's the political-economy, stupid.

  • Ep 43 - Give 'Em Enough Trope w/ Eli Valley
    play_circle_outlinepause_circle_outline
    00:00:00
    01:28:00

    We are joined by cartoonist, writer and all-around provocateur @elivalley to talk about his work, including recent online run-ins with fellow Jewish luminaries Ben Shapiro, Meghan McCain and Chelsea Clinton. Eli discusses the ways in which his art lampoons the fraught and contentious relationship between Israeli/Christian Zionists and the largely liberal/leftist Jewish diaspora.

    Lots of good talk in here about xenophobic right-wing forces abroad allying with Likudniks and Kahanists in Israel, the war over Jewish identity, and the contradictions that lie at the heart of the Zionist project. We also address the Christchurch massacre and how the Shapiros of the world are going to deal with a certain presidential candidate from Vermont.

    Please listen until the end as we remember Raghav Mehta, a comrade and compatriot who tragically passed away last week.

    Transition Music: Shalom Hanoch - Moshiach Lo Ba

    Outro Music: Mystic Inane - Eggs Onna Plate
