Politics Theory Other #74: Narendra Modi and Hindu nationalism

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 the future of the Labour party (with Richard Seymour), the Green New Deal (with Thea Riofrancos), the financial crisis (with Adam Tooze), Islamophobia and the War on Terror (with Nisha Kapoor), and Jeremy Gilbert on Maurizio Lazzarato and the reception of French theory in the anglophone world.
