We’ve got a jam-packed episode of Coffee with Comrades for you this week. We were joined by Breht Ó Séaghdha of Revolutionary Left Radio and The Guillotine to talk about “Culture” by Terry Eagleton. But first, some current events:
We spend the rest of the episode discussing the cultural analyses of Terry Eagleton, dissecting “American culture,” historical repression, revolutionary ruptures, unfounded and arbitrary authority, neoliberalism, Hollywood, Buddhism, academia, and building an authentic leftist culture.
Intro: “I Ain’t Got No Home in this World” by Woody Guthrie
Interlude: “Propaganda” by Dead Prez
Outro: “The House Always Wins” by Stray From the Path
PS. Stick around 'till the very end for goofy bloopers at Pearson's expense.
