Politics Theory Other #85: Never Let A Serious Crisis Go to Waste
Philip Mirowski on why the Covid-19 pandemic is more opportunity than threat to neoliberalism, with Alex Doherty on the Politics Theory Other podcast.
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 nonviolence (with Judith Butler), the Green New Deal (with Thea Riofrancos), the economic fallout from Covid-19 (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.
