12/5 Remapping Class & Recentering Oppression w/ Tithi Bhattacharya (+Who’s Afraid of Mike Cernovich?)

December 5, 2017

Good afternoon. On today’s show, South Asian history professor Tithi Bhattacharya joins us to discuss her new book “Social Reproduction Theory: Remapping class, recentering oppression.” After laying out the basics of social reproduction theory, she discusses how it can help us understand our nightmarish present moment, as well as what kind of hope it offers for the future.

On the fun half: Mike Cernovich gloats over getting Sam fired from MSNBC, Vic Berger remixes 60 Minutes’ #pizzagate segment (feat. Cernovich), the RNC still backs child molester Roy Moore, a listener in Poland asks if he should vote for a neoliberal party out of fear, Mike Pence once considered a coup against Trump, the mainstream media is total garbage, and many, many callers express their support for show. Thank you!
