i had to drop arsenal for democracy, the working life podcast and the dead pundits society because i don’t have as much time for podcasts anymore but i liked all of them a lot. the nostalgia trap at its best is one of my favorite podcasts. sometimes the takes are shitty but i like when it’s like a leftist academic version of wtf.

intercepted is good but yeah that tucker carlson episode was horrible

then he posted some shitty "apology" where he made every classic garbage excuse in the book simultaneously.

i don't have the energy to really follow the twitter developments but it seems like most of the high profile lefty people he's affiliated with has spoken out against him, which have been something of a positive development in an otherwise awful situation.

there's also been a really gross trend of more liberal types attacking women like abi wilkinson who had been friends with sam, despite the fact that she and others were the first to publicly denounce him and show solidarity with the victim.

What's the consensus on Delete Your Account? I've generally enjoyed all the eps I've heard but haven't listened in a few months.

Seems like its endemic everywhere...

Edit - this isn't an excuse for the sexist attitudes of men on the left, I think I misinterpreted the point.

hit or miss depending on the guest but it's gotten a lot better as of the last few months. kumars was such an awkward host at first but he's loosened up a bit and has gotten more natural on a microphone than he used to be. any of the episodes co-hosted by mariame kaba are worth a listen and i really enjoyed the recent episode with kshama sawant.

not that its a dealbreaker just didn't realize he was "doing the rounds" like he was a comedian promoting a netflix special.


He was a guest on an Australian leftist Podcast a few months ago - honestly, I don't remember what it was called (it might have been mentioned here before) but it was pretty good. Having said that, the main thing about it that stuck with me was the fact that Matt didn't realize that Nick Cave was Australian, which seemed kind of strange as I kind of assumed that was common knowledge but maybe not. Anyway...

Also Doug Henwood rules. The recent full-episode interview with Yanis Varoufakis was a good one.

Yeah I listened to the most recent Arsenal for Democracy this morning and he was on it. I actually didn't mind though because he was on to discuss the idea that I found most affecting and insightful of anything I heard on Chapo - his "right-wingers are preparing for an authoritarian, racist, genocidal response to climate change-induced resource scarcity"

the idea is fleshed out more in the arsenal for democracy episode. also check out "tropic of chaos" which i think is questionable in terms of its political prescriptions (parenti wants us to take a mitigationist approach to the environmental effects of capitalism because we don't have time for fundamental reform) but is very good in terms of its description of the relationship between climate change, capitalist global development and the drive towards authoritarian nationalism in the global north

"four futures" is a standard recc i think but i liked it a lot, it's broadly the same idea but more from the perspective of automation rendering a large swathe of the population essentially surplus to capital's requirements

ugh maybe i shouldn't be sharing this because the emotional violence level is pretty high in general these days but every day CTH people don't come out against harassment and apologize for making light of violence against women i get more and more despairing about the left

The person who made that tweet is going through something and has spent days harassing a trans woman. It's bizarre and grotesque even by twitter standards.
