Episode 122 - Culture "Strike" w/ Dana Kopel
/

Lucia, Sarah and OK finally succumb to their greatest foe: internet monopolies and 1/4” of rain. Dana Kopel of @153local, and formerly @newmuseum_union, returns! Dana’s new piece in the Nation, a review of Laura Raicovich’s Culture Strike with the extremely metal title “Is it Time to Abolish Museums?” (Editors, folks, am I rite?) pokes at the soft spots in art world people’s heads that let them doublethink their way into the Barcelona chairs of institutional power. We talk about our eternal will they/won’t they Strike MOMA, the limits of culture, the limits of strikes, and add a layer to the Art and Labor lost media iceberg simply titled “super donuts”

Episode 121 - Intersectional CIA
/

The state continues to pinkwash, reaching it’s deepest pits. We continue our thread of takes on the CIA rebrand, and push back against the stupidpol takes permeating the discourse. Some of the usual terminally online suspects think intersectionality is a concept to completely disregard because of co-option. Nobody’s saying to throw away the labor movement when it’s also often absorbed or pandered to by liberals. These struggles are linked, and are more likely to win demands when in solidarity with each other. It’s very clear to anyone who regularly touches grass. The world is burns while the western left debates PMCs again. Free Palestine within our lifetime.
