About Jack Graham

Hello, I'm Jack Graham, writer and podcaster.  You can find all my work here.  My perspective is Marxist-Humanism, as founded by Raya Dunayevskaya, combined with 'Gothic Marxism'.  (See here, here, here, here, here, and here.)

I write about anything that takes my fancy, usually to do with current politics and/or media.  I've written a lot about the Austrian School of economics, libertarianism, the alt-Right, Trumpism and fascism.  I co-authored an essay on this subject in Elizabeth Sandifer's book Neoreaction a Basilisk.  I [used to] regularly produce substantial essays as blog posts.  At the moment I'm concentrating on fiction.

I'm now hosting the successful antifascist podcast I Don't Speak German, in which I chat with my friend Daniel Harper about his researches into everything from the so-called 'alt-right' to the equally so-called 'IDW'.  Daniel has spent years listening to hours and hours of right-wing podcasts and Youtube videos, and now he's back to tell us all about the bizarre and evil shit he heard them say to each other in their own safe spaces. 

Daniel and I were also two of the hosts of the Wrong With Authority podcast, a show about movies about history and the history they're about.  Defunct, the back episodes show up here as bonuses for backers.  I occasionally produce an episode of my own podcast, up to now known as the Shabcast.  (The Shabcast was hosted at Pex Lives.)

I've written or podcasted about loads of stuff, from Shakespeare to Doctor Who, from horror films to Star Wars, from Harry Potter to Nazism, from Margaret Thatcher to Alien, from Lovecraft to Fidel Castro, from Starship Troopers to the nature of Christmas, from Jack the Ripper to Orson Welles, from John Dee to Idiocracy, from Kesha to Stephen King, from Macbeth to Jim Henson movies, from The Matrix to Alice in Wonderland.  And so on.

If you're interested in helping me continue to create content for free, I'd be very grateful for your kind contribution.  Sponsors will get exclusive access to work in advance of publication, when possible, and often to 'deleted scenes' (so to speak) cut from essays and podcasts.
