We're out of time. We've got a very small window of time to reverse the damage done by capitalism and build a socialist future, before humanity is doomed. To cope, we've decided to record ourselves talking about the left, the right, history, politics, theory, and other things we think are relevant to our late-capitalist epoch. A clean, honest, and unsentimental melancholy is required; we've cultivated one and would like to share it with you.
