The Lit Review is a new podcast series where we will interview organizers and community members about books. On each episode, we'll lead an informal conversation with our guests about a key book that has helped them develop their analysis and theory of change. We recognize that political study is not accessible to many for a variety of reasons: financial, academic jargon, low literacy rates, time barriers, etc. We'll summarize, talk through key concepts and vocab, and nerd out on the main ideas and questions raised in the book. Our goal is to be a resource that brings key information out of these books to the masses during this moment of urgency. Each episode will be about an hour long or less.

Powerful popular education for our movements

This podast is fantastic! Real, legit Chicago organizers bring passion and curiosity to each interview. It's great to hear about books I haven't read and to hear interesting analysis about books I have. I just listened to the show on Pedagogy of the Oppressed and it was a great show even though I've studied the book in some depth.

Life feels complete with the Lit Review

This podcast is by far my favorite and my week feels incomplete if I don’t listen to it. This podcast features so many books reviewed by such amazing and intelligent people whose work I appreciate in chicago. The reviews are so thoughtful and whole that it 1. Makes me want to read the books 2. Makes me feel like I know the book even before I get into it. 3. It helps me understand the real life application of the issues discussed in books. 4. How I can transform the words in the book to action for social change. This podcast helps me think through new strategies for life itself. Lastly, I have to say I love the way Monica and Page structure the episodes. They have a new die hard fan in me. Thank you for this gift.

Thoughtful, Clear Conversations on Important Books in Radical Politics

This is one of my favourite podcasts. This is a very confusing, scary, and overwhelming moment in American politics and culture. I have a deep admiration for organisers in Chicago and elsewhere who have spent so much of their lives caring about and thinking about how to make their communities secure, and build lasting and trusting and mutual relationships that help bring an alternative, liberated society into being. This podcast is hosted by some of these fantastic organisers, and they do a simple thing. They bring in conversation other organisers to talk about the important books that helped them think through and understand our complex social, political, and economic realities. Realities of disability, gender, sexuality, race, environment, and capitalism. What does it mean to understand them and start to build an alternative world? This podcast asks simple questions. The interviewees are deeply moved and moving, and best of all, deeply knowledgeable about the practical implications of the books they read. A real model in pedagogy and a pleasure to listen to.
