20 - The Anti-Essentialist Left w/Adolph Reed & Media Nerd Beatdown w/ Will Menaker
Michael analyzes the victory of Cyril Ramaphosa in the ANC’s election in South Africa and the need for new struggle against neoliberalism across the globe.  

We give a shout-out to The Great Lakes Commons Project whose work creating alternative currency has been successful at mobilizing people to defend the Great Lakes from environmental abuse.

Adolph L. Reed Jr. professor at the University of Pennsylvania joins us to talk about the anti-essentialist left position and his critique of contemporary intersectionality.

Will Menaker (@willmenaker) of Chapo Trap House (@chapotraphouse) is in studio to talk about the three biggest nerds in media Will Saletan, Ben Shapiro, and in the postgame David French.
