THIS IS REVOLUTION>podcast Ep. 291: Interrogating Intersectionality w/ Jen Pan of Jacobin
01:05:19
One of the terms of art that has become popularized in the current age of hyper politics is intersectionality. A notion created by academic Kimberle Crenshaw that arose in conjunction with critical race theory, intersectionality became so popular it was weaponized by Hillary Clinton in her 2016 presidential election bid. Is intersectionality anything more than a plea for equality of distribution, recognition, and opportunity in a capitalist political economy that is rooted inequality and exploitation. Is this simply an identitarian plea for inclusion in the seating among the deck chairs of the titanic?   About TIR Thank you, guys, again for taking the time to check this out.

With the rising tensions between the United States and Russia that have occurred within the last decade, combined with the conflicts the U.S. is experiencing with China many have discussed how a new Cold War has developed between countries within the former Soviet sphere of influence and the United States. Two countries that have been particularly plagued with negative press in the face of such politics are Cuba and Venezuela. Both countries have attempted economic models that have challenged the capitalist norm that dominates world markets. Our guest has recently visited both countries and will give us a view not shared often about how these countries are surviving under strict U.S. sanctions.   Read Jacqueline's work here: https://sputniknews.com/author_luqman_jacqueline/   Follow Jacqueline on Twitter here: @Jacquiemdc   About TIR Thank you, guys, again for taking the time to check this out.

TIR PRESENTS THE MAU MAU HOUR f/ PASCAL ROBERT: White Supremacy vs Capitalism
01:12:34

One of the constant themes of contemporary racial discourse involves the way white supremacy is dispatched as a notion to explain every aspect of racial harm that Black and Brown people experience. From gentrification to mass incarceration it must be the evil white supremacy that drives all the ills that affect communities of color. Is it possible that using White Supremacy as a universal cause of racialized harm denies more awareness of how capitalism results in harms that are racialized because of the reality of disproportionate labor redundancy for communities of color? Does using White Supremacy to explain racialized social ills do nothing but create a racial grievance system where elites leverage the misery of the Black masses for foundation largesse or a MacArthur genius award?

THIS IS REVOLUTION>podcast Ep. 287: The History of Haitian Voodoo w/ Dr. Paul Mocombe
02:19:18

With the close of Haitian heritage month this May 2022, Haitians throughout the diaspora are celebrating their revolutionary history and its significance. An important aspect of Haitian cultural expression that often faces less praise as an element of Haitian life is Haitian Vodou. As a spiritual manifestation that has deep roots in Haitian society, Haitian Vodou is often mischaracterized and pejoratively deemed as a cultural fetishism. In this episode we will seek to dismiss the myths and stereotypes about Haitian Vodou and clarify its cosmological foundations and core beliefs

THIS IS REVOLUTION>podcast Ep. 285: Interrogating Hotels for the Unhoused w/ Randy Shaw
01:08:14
A recent article in the San Francisco Chronicle reported violent, and vile unlivable conditions in the city’s Hotels for the unhoused. From overdoses to rat infestations. We witnessed during the early days of the pandemic, the great source of refuge the single room occupancy hotels became for the city’s homeless. Are the hotels as bad as the Chronicle is reporting? Or is this hit piece perfect fodder for a crack down for a vulnerable population that is often overlooked and underfunded.   Randy Shaw Randy Shaw is the Editor of Beyond Chron and the Director of San Francisco’s Tenderloin Housing Clinic, which publishes Beyond Chron. Shaw's latest book is Generation Priced Out: Who Gets to Live in the New Urban America. He is the author of four prior books on activism, including The Activist's Handbook: Winning Social Change in the 21st Century, and Beyond the Fields: Cesar Chavez, the UFW and the Struggle for Justice in the 21st Century.

THIS IS REVOLUTION>podcast Ep. 279: Detoxing the From the Right Wing Brainwash w/ Jen Senko
01:15:24
Right wing media has had a stranglehold on terrestrial radio and cable news for decades. What led the right to dominate the airwaves and brainwash a generation? About Jen Senko Jen Senko, a documentary filmmaker, author, and media-activist based in New York City, is known for her award-winning documentaries; Road Map Warrior Women (2000), The Vanishing City (2010), and The Brainwashing of My Dad (2016) narrated by Matthew Modine. In 2021, The Brainwashing of My Dad received the prestigious People's Voice Award in Public Service & Activism from The Webby Awards. Senko's adaptation of her film into a book of the same name (published on October 5, 2021) tracks the pernicious and addictive rise of right-wing media and how this media served as a tool for libertarian billionaires to get people to vote against their own interests and gain one-party rule. Jen's work focuses on socio political themes with the intent of inspiring activism and fomenting change.   You can find her movie here: https://vimeo.com/ondemand/thebrainwashingofmydad...   About TIR Thank you, guys, again for taking the time to check this out.

THIS IS REVOLUTION>podcast Ep. 278: Remembering the ’92 L.A. Riots w/ Francesca Fiorentini
03:16:29
30 years ago America watched in horror as South Central Los Angeles burned after the not guilty verdict was announced in the Rodney King police beating. 28 years later we saw a country wide eruption of frustration over law enforcement's extra judicial killings of George Floyd and Breona Taylor. From 1968 in Watts, to 1992 in South Central, to 2020 what is the main function of these uprisings and what have they accomplished in their wake? What has changed with law enforcement? Is the idea of reforming law enforcement a bourgeois project? Has BLM or Abolish/Defund the Police helped or is it simply a more radical hashtag activism? We’ll ask these questions and more.   About Francesca Fiorentini began her journalistic work in 2004 with War Resisters League and Left Turn.   From 2013 to 2019, Fiorentini was the host and senior producer of AJ+, the digital media outlet of Al Jazeera. She was the host of AJ+ show Newsbroke. Since 2016, Fiorentini has appeared on progressive network The Young Turks as a guest and contributor. She is one of the hosts of The Young Turks show The Damage Report hosted by John Iadarola.

01:04:58
"We Accept The Reality Of The World With Which We're Presented. It's As Simple As That." -Ed Harris in “The Truman Show” (1998)   In the 1998 film the Truman Show, Jim Carrey plays the title character Truman Burbank (true man) who lives an idyllic life in a quaint coastal town that is a cliche of Americana in the 1950’s. A perfect town free of crime, traffic, or unhappy people. Unbeknownst to Truman the town in the largest movie set in the world where his entire life is filmed and broadcasted 24 hours a day as “The Truman Show”. From the womb to adulthood people have followed the adventures of Truman Burbank. From first steps to first kisses, his parents, wife, and friends are all actors. Every experience, every mundane interaction is curated and sold for public consumption by the svengali of this simulated paradise, the director of the show Christof.   Are we now at a point in neoliberal capitalism where unlike Truman we ARE aware that we are indeed the brand to be sold. All our interactions are transactions to be bought and sold. Our only value is a market value. The curated experience isn’t a nightmare, it’s the goal.   About TIR Thank you, guys, again for taking the time to check this out. We appreciate each and every one of you.

THIS IS REVOLUTION>podcast Ep. 273: The Problems with Race Reductionism in Sociology w/ Dr. Zine Magubane
01:04:49
It is often said that racism is ingrained in the DNA of America. An unavoidable consequence of a country founded on the notion of White Supremacy. Critical Race Theory architect Derrick Bell spoke of "interest convergence" meaning, the interest of all Black people achieving racial equality will only be accommodated when it converges with the interests of whites." Do shared racial connections outweigh class analysis? Does Critical Race Theory, Intersectionality, and Anti Racism, ignore working class struggles and embrace capitalist reforms?   Zine Magubane As an historical sociologist and an Africanist, my aim has been to show that because the development of sociology has always been so closely connected with the colonization of Africa, sociology has always been ‘global’. It has also, however, produced knowledge in the service of colonial power. The connections between the history of sociology and the practice of colonial rule are, however, not well known. My work aims to change this. Much of my work is oriented around demonstrating that the frustrations that sociologists are currently experiencing about the limited abilities of our theories and methods to meet the challenge of studying global and transnational social processes are the results of this particular aspect of sociology’s disciplinary history having been occluded. The inadequacy of many of the normative presuppositions that underlie sociology’s core interpretive premises are, I have argued, are the logical outcome of the elision of this key aspect of our disciplinary history.   About TIR Thank you, guys, again for taking the time to check this out.

01:32:58
The concept of “artificial intelligence” is aspirational and according to our guest "does not describe any existing or likely to exist computational system. Despite this, the concept is promoted to attract investment capital and customers but also, more critically for my purposes, devalue the power of labor – if not in fact than in perception (which, in turn, becomes fact). For this reason, I assert that ‘AI’, as a concept, is part of a propaganda campaign."

THIS IS REVOLUTION>podcast Ep. 264: From Disco to House and History f/ Jeremiah McAllister
02:05:23

Today we’re going to talk about a genre that is extremely near and dear to the hearts of both Pascal and I. While his attachment may be visceral and sentimental, there is a large imprint this music has on my DNA in what I created with Bitter Lake, and my previous band La Fin Absolute Du Monde.  We’re going to be talking about House Music.  It’s origins as a unifying force for cis and gay Black males in deindustrialized Detroit, to a drug music phenomenon in the UK that was almost outlawed.  We constantly ask the question if music has revolutionary potential, did house rave music possess that at one time? Or was it just on the wrong end of the right dominated anti political culture war and war on drugs era.

 

Our guest Jeremiah McAllister is a veteran in the house music scene having worked with its founding fathers as a keyboard player and producer.

TIR PRESENTS THE MAU MAU HOUR W/ Pascal Robert: Black Cultural Nationalism
01:06:41
Cultural Nationalism is an ideology or practice that fuses collective cultural identity with a defined sense of "peoplehood." In the context of the Black or African Diaspora it usually demonstrates itself as a strong connection to manifestations of African Culture and even domestic Black cultural production. Does cultural nationalism have a beneficial political purpose in terms of material benefit? Or is it real just a form of identity redemption in the face of historical European colonialism.   About TIR Thank you, guys, again for taking the time to check this out.

THIS IS REVOLUTION>podcast Ep. 262: The Reactionary Conservative Mind w/ Professor Corey Robin
01:06:34
Corey Robin is a well-respected political scientist. He has written several books, most famously, “The Reactionary Mind: Conservatism from Edmund Burke to Donald Trump,” and, “The Enigma of Clarence Thomas.” Corey has dedicated much scholarship to the nature of American political conservatism. His books trace the ideological groundings of American conservatism in the United States. Though we have had several guests on our show that discussed the danger of the current reactionary right, Corey Robin offers a different thesis. Robin argues that Right is not strong but weak, and that their capacity to implement their agenda has been severely hampered over time.   Corey Robin is an American political theorist, journalist and professor of political science at Brooklyn College and the Graduate Center of the City University of New York.   About TIR Thank you, guys, again for taking the time to check this out.

Probably one of the largest podcasts in the country and at times a major platform for right wing ideology and recently COVID misinformation. Should the we on the left try to take advantage when invited on these larger platforms to get our message out? Or should we avoid at all cost for fear of becoming a tool in more right wing propaganda? We'll talk with Ben about his experience and how we should approach these influencer figures in general.

Often when people think of Jim Crow it is viewed as a racial regime of terror put upon Blacks further validating White hatred for Black people.

Today we will discuss how political economy was driving force behind the Jim Crow regime and that means for Black American politics today.   About TIR Thank you, guys, again for taking the time to check this out.

THIS IS REVOLUTION>podcast Ep. 248: Free People of Color in the Antebellum South w/Warren Eugene Milteer, Jr.
01:14:03
Often Black identity in America is flattened to create a unified notion of Black community. As a consequence, the various class divisions that exist in Black America are obscured to facilitate Black social and political activity being easily governed by the American political establishment. When slavery is discussed, the images of all Black folk toiling on plantations comes to mind. What that image belies is that there have been free Black people, known as free people of color, that have existed in America since the earliest periods in colonial history. Shockingly, it occurred at times that these free people of color even owned their own Black slaves. What was the nature of free people of color societies. How did free people of color function in the antebellum south. How extensive was slave ownership among free people of color?   Warren Eugene Milteer, Jr. Warren Eugene Milteer, Jr. is an assistant professor of history at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. He received his Ph.D. from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2014. His publications include two academic books, Beyond Slavery’s Shadow: Free People of Color in the South (UNC Press, 2021) and North Carolina’s Free People of Color, 1715-1885 (LSU Press, 2020), the independently published Hertford County, North Carolina’s Free People of Color and Their Descendants (2016), as well as articles in the Journal of Social History and the North Carolina Historical Review. Milteer was the recipient of the Historical Society of North Carolina’s R. D. W. Connor Award in 2014 and 2016 for the best journal article in the North Carolina Historical Review.   About TIR Thank you, guys, again for taking the time to check this out.

THIS IS REVOLUTION>podcast Ep. 247: Does Music Have a Revolutionary Capacity w/ Jacqueline Lucqman
01:15:16
Music and political upheaval have a long intertwined history in the United States going back to the 19th century. From Billie Holiday’s “Strange Fruit '' to the protest music of the 60’s, music and art has been a defining feature of the counterculture. The soundtrack of rebellion against U.S imperialism, racism, sexism and more. But in this era of hyper capitalism, does music even possess a revolutionary capacity? Or is every counter cultural moment simply a branding exercise. We’ll ask these questions and more.   Jacqueline Luqman Jacqueline Luqman is co-host of By Any Means Necessary on Radio Sputnik, a daily show that analyzes current political and social events through an anti-imperialist, anti-capitalist, radical Black internationalist tradition and lens. She is also a contributor to The Real News Network, Editor-In-Chief of the social media program Coffee, Current Events & Politics in Luqman Nation with her husband Abdushshahid, and a contributor to Black Power Media. She has more than 20 years of activism in Washington, DC focusing on participating in and supporting community-level issues as well as regional and national issues that impact working-class, poor, and oppressed people in the US and abroad. She is a member of the Black Alliance for Peace, Pan-African Community Action, is a supporter of several other grassroots radical Black-focused and led organizations, and is an active member of the Board of Social Action in Plymouth Congregational United Church of Christ, a progressive church in Washington, DC.   Listen to Jacqueline Here https://sputniknews.com/author_luqman_jacqueline/   About TIR Thank you, guys, again for taking the time to check this out.

THIS IS REVOLUTION>podcast Ep. 244: We’re All Sellouts Now f/ Catherine Liu, Conan Neutron, Pascual Romero, Adam Sherbourne, Bill Cody
01:28:56

In the light of the public feud between Neil Young and Spotify, many people are leaving the music platform citing it’s contract with podcaster Joe Rogan and his platforming of COVID misinformation coupled with the extremely low royalties rates paid to artists. While this mass exodus of consumers and artists makes for great culture war headlines, it obfuscates a larger issue with the passive way we consume music and the monopoly control over what you hear and how you hear it.

 

With streaming platforms such as Spotify being one of the main ways for new artists to get heard and attempt to breakthrough for mainstream success, how can they compete against major record label capital and an oversaturated market place that releases 60k songs PER DAY on average? With more musicians finding it more lucrative to create sound libraries to be put in movies and television scores and commercial jingles, writing and recording the next great record could be an antiquated notion. Corporate sponsorship, getting a larger corporate sponsored tour, and even playing corporate sponsored venues is the goal of many artists mainstream and underground alike. So, are we all sellouts now?

THIS IS REVOLUTION>podcast Ep. 243: Russia Resurgent Ukraine and Kazakhstan w/ Harun Yilmaz
03:03:03

In recent months, western media pundits and officials have been near apoplectic about both the Russian intervention into Kazakhstan as well as the deteriorating security situation on the Ukrainian-Russian border. While many in the American foreign policy and media establishment are warning of growing Russian aggression vis-à-vis its neighbors, Russia claims it is merely acting defensively in face of NATO expansion. What is the historical context behind Russia’s relationship with its neighbors? What explains Russian actions in the Ukraine and Kazakhstan? And what do these developments mean for both regional and global affairs? We speak to historian Harun Yilmaz, who has written extensively on Russia, Kazakhstan, and Ukraine.

 

Dr. Harun Yilmaz:

Dr. Harun Yilmaz received his master’s and doctoral degrees from the University of Oxford and subsequently worked as a research fellow at Harvard Ukrainian Research Institute. He is currently a British Academy research fellow at Queen Mary University of London. He is a regional expert on history, politics, national identities, and political propaganda. His academic and popular publications cover Ukraine, Central Asia, and the Caucasus. Dr. Yilmaz worked in these locations for long periods of time and acquired an excellent grasp of existing political and cultural issues at grassroots level. His language skills include Turkish, Russian, Ukrainian, Azerbaijani, and Kazakh. His most recent book is National Identities in Soviet Historiography: The Rise of Nations under Stalin

TIR PRESENTS MOVIE NIGHT EXTRAVAGANZA: THE CONVERSATION f/ Francesca Fiorentini and Erica Strout
01:14:04

Forrest Miller and Conan Neutron discuss The Conversation with Erica Strout and Francesca Fiorentini. Picture This: it's the middle of Watergate in 1974 and America is in the grip of an obsession with surveillance and wiretapping. During the hearings, it has been revealed that Nixon taped every single conversation in the Oval Office and that might be key to finding the "Smoking Gun." As Congress debates whether to subpoena those tapes, Francis Ford Coppola releases a new movie: The Conversation starring Gene Hackman.

The Conversation is a film about Harry Caul, a Private Surveillance Expert who is obsessed with his own privacy. Caul is assigned to watch and record a couple having a Conversation in Union Square. As the film goes on, Harry Caul begins to suspect that the couple he's recording is in danger and might get killed if he releases the tapes.

THIS IS REVOLUTION>podcast Ep. 240: War on Abortion w/ Lillian Cicerchia and Sara Mellors-Rodriquez
02:39:40
Jason, Pascal, and Marcus speak with Lillian Cicerchia and Sarah Mellors about the ongoing political struggle over abortion.   Lillian Cicerchia Lillian is a post-doc at the Institute of Philosophy at the Free University of Berlin. Her areas of specialization are political philosophy, feminist philosophy, and critical theory. Her research is about capitalism, structural injustice, and the intersection of the two, especially the ways in which capitalism influences experiences of social group oppression. Her work also asks how contexts of structural injustice frame the way that we think about our normative criteria for justice in terms of democratic rights and participation.   Sarah Mellors Sarah Mellors Rodriguez is an Assistant Professor of East Asian History at Missouri State University. Her forthcoming book (Cambridge University Press, 2022) examines birth control and abortion in China from the early twentieth century to the present.   About TIR Thank you, guys, again for taking the time to check this out.
