Even before the pandemic began, the United States was in the throes of a widespread housing crisis. We discuss the current situation, the inequities inherent to the housing market and the landlord-tenant relationship, and short-term vs. long-term solutions. Mentioned in this article:  Jacobin's article on community land trusts (https://www.jacobinmag.com/2019/07/community-land-trusts-clts-problems) Philosophy Tube (https://www....

Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day: we think it's safe to say he would not be pleased. A pandemic rages, police aid fascists in an insurrection on the Capitol Building, Congress performs a symbolic impeachment while largely ignoring the material needs of the People, and corporations unilaterally decide who gets to speak on our society's largest public forum - the internet. We have a chat with the gentlemen at Build Pod Better...

This year was another classic example of the eternal debate between trying to achieve power through coy insider politics or doubling down on blunt, bold, vocal activism. We address the myth that this year's advocacy for left and progressive policies somehow hurt the Democrats in this election. And we discuss how, more importantly, if we do not fight for what we believe in - which includes actually vocalizing support for good po...

We interview philosophy instructor and author Ben Burgis about Marxism and whether it's the boogeyman your republican aunt told you it is. According to Burgis, it’s a critique of what’s wrong with capitalism and a set of democratic principles for the working class to fight for going forward.

We break down democratic socialism with Nathan Robinson, editor of leftist magazine "Current Affairs" and author of the book "Why You Should be a Socialist." We talk about what it is, why we're down for it, and why - if you want to build a better world - we think you should be down for it too.

Our hosts interview with author and former columnist, editor, and  correspondent Ellis Cose to discuss the myth of "free speech" in  America, how the right is co-opting the term to justify untruthful and  hateful political speech, and how - under the guise of "free speech" -  corporations, the rich, and the powerful have managed to dominate our political discourse and the outcome of elections at the expense of the r...

The "war on drugs" is an intentionally racist government program that has disrupted Black, underrepresented communities throughout the nation for over 30 years. It is a huge reason for the over-policing of predominantly Black neighborhoods, the state of mass incarceration, and why experts discuss our criminal legal system as being structurally, systematically racist. Steve and Decatur discuss the history of this domestic &#...
