One of the Best

This really is one of the best leftist podcasts getting made these days. Very good discussions of various texts and on occasion how the theories discussed related to current events. They are both very smart.

This, my favorie Pod

Really enjoy the Left Anchor pod, where Coop & Alexi take us on many an intellectual journey, dropping the anchor into a new harbor every episode. Each time delving into the lives, stories, and works of influential historic thinkers, writers, orators—deep dives that help me better understand their views and historic context as well as bring to surface the rather timeless insights (or mistakes) and apply them to our current political circumstances.
But it's not just a history class, the pod is peppered with interviews featuring contemporary and ever influential thinkers, writers, historians, professors, activist judges — informed voices in their respected fields all talking about pertinent topics with the hosts, who continue the theme of looking square in the eye at the constellation of facts and values surrounding the issues that matter to and define not just the Left, but our shared reality.
Then it all gets drawn back into a sturdy knot tying a sense of love for humanity and a commitment to more justice in a way and at a time that recognizes socialism as a pragmatic method to get from where we are to where we're going to. The pod lives up to its name, the fighting Left throwing down while the winds of political fortune are whipping fast over the choppy seas, the Anchor below that has it's strength in being grounded.

Clearly biased

Both the podcast and my perspective on it. 3 stars for small points of agreement but overall the episode I listened to was deeply flawed. Found Cooper via a twitter thread on Yemen and tuned in to the Jonathan Haidt podcast. Was pretty surprised that the hosts managed to pass off ad hominem attacks like “faux liberal” or “pseudo intellectual” for so long before getting to any critiques of substance. And then... what a let down... I don’t think Haidt ever makes a moral claim about whether having more/less “moral foundations” is good/bad. So to take the thesis of his book as a personal attack on leftism is pretty misguided.
