Haven’t you heard? People are feeling socialism these days--almost as much as they’re feeling the crushing anxiety of mounting debt, climate catastrophe and the rising tide of bigotry and racism. But what exactly does socialism mean today? Jen Roesch and Danny Katch talk politics and protest with a range of guests to uncover the path to a better world from the wreckage of this dung heap. If the daily struggle with capitalism has you teetering on the edge of existential despair, then this is your indispensable dose of socialist wisdom and hope.

Customer Reviews


I've been waiting so long for a good socialist podcast, and based on the first episode this pod delivers! I've been following the hosts' writing on Socialist Worker and in other publications for years now, and they are both incredibly talented at laying down a deep and nuanced analysis in an accessible and engaging way. I can't wait to hear more!

Trump will hate this!

This is the socialist podcast for a generation that knows it has to change the world from top to bottom. For a rough idea of where the Better Off Red teams falls on the political spectrum, think Bernie and then, as the song says, it's just a jump to the left. I listened to the pre-launch intro and I have high hopes. They're starting lineup next week includes Kenanga-Yamahtta Taylor (author of From #Black Lives Matter to Black Liberation) and Brian Jones (socialist/educator/actor extraordinaire). If you are looking for no-nonsense Marxism, reports from the frontlines of struggle, and (hopefully) just the right amount of humor, subscribe to this podcast and share it with your friends. Here's to hearing Better of Red in the cafes at night and revolution in the air.

An amazing leftwing podcast with a revolutionary socialist message

I’ve been waiting for a podcast like this for some time and now it is finally here. Danny and Jen are amazing and Eric too. They bring a unique perspective that is open and non-sectarian but still maintains a very particular point of view. Very excited!
