Sophie Lewis on Trans-exclusionary radical feminism

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 2008 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.
