About

Please support The Dig, a weekly, usually twice weekly, podcast from Jacobin magazine on the politics of class warfare everywhere. We talk to left-wing scholars and activists about politics, history, criminal justice, immigration and more. Jacobin is a leading voice of the American left, offering socialist perspectives on politics, economics, and culture. The Dig is doing the same in audio form.

The show is hosted by journalist Daniel Denvir, who writes about criminal justice, immigration and politics and is currently working on a book about immigration politics for Verso.

We need your support so we can keep this thing alive. Past guests include Glenn Greenwald, Sarah Jaffe, Naomi Klein, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Bernie Sanders, Matt Bruenig, Barbara and Karen Fields, Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor, Sarah Jones, Nancy Fraser, Aziz Rana, Mark Blyth, Stephanie Coontz, Diane Ravitch and Khalil Gibran Muhammad. If you have an idea for a guest, email the host at danielDOTdenvirATgmailDOTcom.

Where does the money go? Good question! It pays a full-time salary to Daniel Denvir, a part-time salary to producer Alex Lewis, a part-time salary to communications coordinators Julia Rock and Zach Ngin, as well as for payments for music and tons of random overhead. We also spend your money on improving guest audio by hiring producers to record our guests' end of most interviews. And now, we're spending a ton of money transcribing our entire archive. And we have more ideas coming soon. Please note: patron rewards will typically be sent no sooner than three months after support is initiated. Sometimes, people drop their support early, which is totally cool, but in that case we lose money if we send the reward too soon.

The complete archives, searchable by guest and by topic, are here.

Help keep The Dig strong for the long haul as we improve the show, do more live events, and build our new website—which will allow you to easily locate episodes by subject alongside a transcript (!) for each and every one.
