Spine Check 3 - Abolishing Value and Time w/ Jake Flores (Preview)

Ep 107 - Philosopher Kings of Comedy w/ Jakie Flores and Tana Ganeva

Jake "Silly Socrates" Flores is back on the show to talk about his new podcast Why You Mad? and theories of comedy and class war. But before that, we talk about something that's no laughing matter: the NYPD's permissive culture towards rapists and other abusers on the force, unfortunately celebrated by humorous challenge coins and nicknames like the "assman". Writer for the Appeal and the Intercept Tana Ganeva joins us to discuss the failures of Cuomo and di Bunglio's even tepid reforms, speculate why it's been such a shell game, and if "defund" or "abolish" police and prisons are the right approach.

Ep 107 - Philosopher Kings of Comedy w/ Jakie Flores and Tana Ganeva

Ep 106 - Be Water w/ Wilfred Chan

We talk about the pro-democracy struggle in Hong Kong with Nation and Lausan writer Wilfred Chan. From its history of struggling against British colonialism to its rejection of being China's neoliberal "window to the world," the movement provides many contemporary lessons on the potentitals and contradictions of mass organizing. But while reactionary elements of the movement are central, it is no use for the left to simply turn its back. Chan's work stakes out its leftwing, translating its most revolutionary aspects for an international audience, and deepening correspondences with other struggles around the world. We move from the particularities of HK to the global economic roots of the struggle, and how its most innovative tactics (like umbrella-shield frontliners and laser-wielding "light mages") have spread to Chile, France, and now the Pacific Northwest. Finally, we discuss the painfully hypocritical deepening tensions between the US and China, and the prospects of World War II...

PROLETKULT 8 - Meme Magic w/ Joshua Citarella (Preview)

Politigram ethnographer Joshua Citarella shares his observations about the online post-left, particularly its zoomer base radicalized in 2016 meme wars. We discuss how important were memes to Trumps' victory, their political journey since then, and how the left can de/re-radicalize those committed to the violent right. Finally, we discuss the phenomenon of memes becoming reality, especially in the context of Unite the Right in Charlottesville and the CHAZ/CHOP in Seattle. For the full episode, along with all our Patron-only bonuses like History is a Weapon and Vampire Castle, and access to our own meme stash, subscribe at http://patreon.com/theantifada Show notes: Joshua Citarella on Instagram Joshua Citarella on Patreon Politigram and the Post-Left Read the Moon Book Theme music: Georgio Moroder - Racer

On this new installment of HIAW, Matt and Sean are joined by para-political expert Andy to talk about the political economy of intelligence and counterintelligence: How is this formation unique to capitalism and the bourgeois state?

Ep 103: Statue? I hardly know you! w/ Nick Estes

Our guest this week is Nick Estes, citizen of the Lower Brule Sioux Tribe, Assistant Professor of American Studies at University of New Mexico, host of the Red Nation Podcast, and author of Our History is the Future: Standing Rock Versus the Dakota Access Pipeline, and the Long Tradition of Indigenous Resistance. We discuss the link between indigenous and black struggles in the context of the no-DAPL blockade at Standing Rock and Black Lives Matter, statue removals and vandalism in New Mexico and in New York at #OccupyCityHall, whether attacking statues of Lincoln and Grant are "justified," and the final boss: Mt. Rushmore. Finally we chat about the tensions and intersections between decolonization and revolutionary communism.
