    SEASON 2: EP 10: Travis Scott

    15:31

    Today's episode will be about celebrity culture, and escapism within late stage capitalist america. This episode will be focused and centered on actual people- specifically Travis Scott and his concert on November 5th in Houston Texas, but will also include mentions of the Kardashian Jenners. I want to acknowledge that Travis Scott's concert was a horrible tragedy and those people did not deserve to die. My heart goes out to them. I tried my best in this episode to be as sensitive to that tragedy as I can while discussing the socio economic foundations.  Go Fundme made a hub for those affected by the incident you can check that out here: https://www.gofundme.com/c/act/astroworld-festival-fundraisers Whats Left of the Left link tree: https://linktr.ee/WLOTL

    SEASON 2: EP 9: Giving, Generosity, and Selflessness Under Capitalism

    11:34

    This episode is pretty chill and laid back so I put music in the background. I talk and contemplate the idea of generosity under capitalism and just in general and where the lines are between exploitation and selflessness. I got feedback from people on my instagram, snapchat, email and twitter on this topic as well. Hope you enjoyed!  Linktree(instagram, twitter, YouTube, other platforms etc): https://linktr.ee/WLOTL

    SEASON 2: EP 5: Makeup: A tool of the Patriarchy

    16:31

    My research and ideas on this are purely a critique of western society and The United States specifically. This is in no way related to makeup use of indigenous people or cultures outside of America. This also is an analysis of mainstream makeup trends.  Whats Left of the Left Linktree: https://linktr.ee/WLOTL

    SEASON 2: Bonus episode: History Through Strangers Eyes

    16:23

    This episode is not strictly about leftist/radical analysis, but includes it. This is a project I did for AP US history at Edina Highschool. I went around Lake Harriet in Minneapolis and asked strangers what they think is the most influential historical event they've witnessed in their lives. Enjoy!  Shout out to my APUSH teacher Mr. Anderson for the A I got on this project  Whats left of the left link tree: https://l.instagram.com/?u=https%3A%2F%2Flinktr.ee%2FWLOTL&e=ATOngu7_j42-BQ6w6e47-DQCpF3EqqUUFxdC7vT_uEnC33lh_A4EtiSRX9NE-adzrBzw1P5wkd6pU9XoXgPipg&s=1
