About Red Library
This is the Patreon home for Red Library, a political education podcast and theory repository for today's Leftist activists and organizers across the globe. Our mission on the show is to mine the depths of books on Leftist theory, politics, economics and everything else to help us tackle the pressing political questions we face today then share it with anyone willing to listen.
We know that finding time to read long, difficult books is challenging for anyone, especially when you have a job or a family to take care of. But since political education is so vital for organizing and talking about solving political problems, how can we access the ideas and strategies of these vital works without being an academic or spending all our time buried in a stack of dense tomes? That's where Red Library comes in.
We read the books and teach the content to you in an accessible and engaging way through one-on-one interviews between myself and a rotating cast of excellent guests. Here is how it works: one of us reads the book, comes up with a way to teach it to each episode's guest, and the other person shows up to discuss and ask questions. No prep work required for them or for you, the listener.
Our hope is that all you Leftie listeners out there can take what you learn here and apply it in your own thinking, organizing, and efforts to move the Left forward into a stronger and more vital political force today. So tune in every month, take some notes, and share what you learn with your comrades. Share the show with anyone you think that would also benefit – friends, comrades, strangers you meet on the street!!
If you find our work here on Red Library valuable, please consider becoming a Patron and donating a few dollars a month to help support the creation of more shows and providing resources for future episodes. You can also find the host's political theory writing at the Capillaries blog.
