Trump Land, Part 2

Hello comrades,

Here is part 2 of our discussion about Trump. First off I’d like to apologize about the eating sounds in the last, there are a few in this one that I wasn’t able to remove as well, so apologies. There also was some electronic clicking for a little bit (I think we may be in need of some new mic cords), so apologies for that as well. We pick up our discussion from last time talking about the Democrats, the resistance to Trump, the Democratic Socialists of America, G.W. Bush, and of course our fascist president.

And I, Tony, was wrong. I was conflating these two statements:

New Episode! Trump Land, Part 1

Hey everyone,

Been a while. You’ll notice that we say in this episode that we recorded this on the day of the French elections, which is a bit ago already. The reason for the lag is that we wanted to build up a backlog of recordings so that even we aren’t able to get together and record for a while, there will not be a gap in our releases for months at a time. We really enjoy doing the podcast (and we hope that you enjoy listening). We don’t aim to have months of time without any episodes, but sometimes life (and busy schedules) gets in the way. We hope to put out new episodes every two weeks for you.

Right then, the last episode we did dealt with the election. This episode we discuss our thoughts on Trump and his administration. We talked a long time on this, so this is just part one of two.

Is America Already Socialist?

No, but are government programs like libraries and public utilities socialist programs?  Could they be a path to a new society?  How can you use them to talk to people about socialism?

Episode 5-1: We’re all hipsters, and capitalism is using that to rip us off

Hello Comrades,

We’re back. It is a bit later than we were hoping, but nevertheless it’s here. For the the next while we may end up not meeting our usual every two weeks. But rest assured we’ll continue to put out as often as we can (and we’ve got several guests lined up that we’re quite excited about).

For the episode, well the title pretty much sums it up. Red and I are talking about how we’re all hipsters, and capitalism is using that to rip us off.
