Adam Tooze on the financial crisis

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 Labour and anti-semitism (with   Richard Seymour), Xenofeminism (with Patricia Reed), the Windrush scandal (with Will Davies), 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.
