This week, Brie spoke to political scientist, activist, former professor and writer Norm Finkelstein about his new book on identity politics and cancel culture. Specifically, he asked Brie to critique his chapter on Barack Obama, and how his identity was weaponized to sell his 2008 candidacy as having revolutionary potential that could meet the scale of the Great Recession. History has shown that Obama's no leftist, but Finkels...

The personal is political, so this week an all female panel weighs in on what it's like to date as a leftist. Is political alignment a necessity? Where would you draw the line? A Kamala Harris supporter? A Buttigeig stan? Do heteronormative gender dynamics make it more difficult for leftist...

On one hand, some folks are arguing that there's no good way to withdraw, and that any discussion about how to improve Biden's actions thi...
