"A bonsai de Gaulle" - Sebastian Budgen on Emmanuel Macron and the Yellow Vests movement
Politics Theory Other is a weekly political podcast. The show aims to bring the work of writers on the radical left to a broader public and to encourage popular engagement with work that is sometimes considered "academic" or "difficult". The show also aims to encourage engagement between the Marxist left and those working in the traditions of cultural studies and post-structuralist theory.
Recent shows have included episodes on Brexit (with Richard Seymour), Xenofeminism (with Patricia Reed), the financial crisis (with Adam Tooze), Silicon Valley and the democratisation of technology (with Wendy Liu), and Jeremy Gilbert on Maurizio Lazzarato and the reception of French theory in the anglophone world.
