Episode 97 - New Cold and Civil Wars

Anti-government plots from the right, and feminist art from cis men? It’s more likely than you think. Getting public art contracts and getting away with murder is WAY easier if you’re man. Also, why are American dudes on Reddit so into defending Hong Kong, is there a reason why the BLM protests aren’t as respected?? We discuss individualism, alienation, and masculinity in America, which has led us to a a hilariously literal toxic white house.

Episode 12 - Art as Agency (and The Dirtbag Left)


We yelled at the mayor! This episode is a response to a recent Chapo Trap House interview about music, identity politics, and activism (listen here: https://soundcloud.com/chapo-trap-house/unlocked-amber-interviews-aaron-j-leonard).  We want to challenge the podcast left to do better coalition building, and to think more critically about art’s potential in revolution. We encourage folks to consider Rivera’s Manifesto: Towards a Free Revolutionary Art, and will be posting another episode where we read the whole thing.
