About Swampside Chats

"The best goddamn communist podcast, period."
—Tom O'Brien, From Alpha to Omega

Swampside Chats is a bimonthly podcast where communists shoot the shit about current events, history, political economy and theory, hosted by Ezri xB & Jake Verso.

We predominantly read and discuss classic and contemporary socialist texts. Sometimes we end up In the Enemy Camp to read and discuss reactionary texts, precious few times we awaken ourselves to The Joy of Sects to get to know our actually-existing left, and sometimes we just drop some hot takes about the latest dystopian developments over in the political swamp. 

Paying off our SoundCloud hosting and improving sound quality are the first orders of business. We also try to pay the panelist who edits an episode, since that's hard work. We have some goodies to share with our patrons, but we pledge never to lock any of our podcast content behind a paywall.
