|Subject:||good podcasts from the left|
recently ive stumbled on two reasonable podcasts from the left, The Useful Idiots (Rolling Stone, Matt Taibbi and some woman podcaster) and the Jimmy Dore show.
After several episodes, I feel like they're a good recommendation if you like politics and youre a borderline communist sympathizer like most of you on this board.
Both seem to stick to talking about issues completely from a leftist POV, but importantly they're not horrible mainstream neocon left, and they're also not unlistenable woke left. They're both pretty anti-media, anti-war, anti-trump derangement, etc.
Hell, when they're talking anti-war (which is very common) they're about as good as any libertarian podcast that I would typically endorse - and isn't that the biggest/most important issue?
Yes, I roll my eyes when they talk about things where I disagree a bit, but I feel like they keep the disagreements honest mostly and so they're a lot more interesting to listen to.
Jimmy Dore in particular, what a firebrand, and it seems like he really has integrity. He's the kind of guy who you'd be really disappointed to find out that he didn't really hold his values.
