After every weekly recording with our guests, we keep the tape rolling (5-10 minutes max) and ask a bonus question, which we'll share right here with our Supporters!

In Season 3, we're asking our guests: "How do you define racial capitalism, and how does it manifest in our daily lives?"

About The Lit Review

Sparked by a moment of urgency in November of 2016, we recognized that mass political education was key to keeping our movements moving forward together. We know that political study is not always accessible for a variety of reasons: financial limitations, academic jargon, low literacy rates, time barriers, and more. Our hope is that this can make critical knowledge more accessible to the masses. Every week, we chat with people we love and respect about relevant books to our current political moment. Think spark notes in podcast form!

We're your hosts, Chicago-based organizers Monica Trinidad and Page May.

Thank you for your support. Keep reading, and keep listening!
