Dustbowl Diatribes 11: Cutrone Convo Postgame

Laurie and Spencer spend some time unpacking the significance of their latest interview with "the last Marxist," Chris Cutrone. Cutrone is one of our favorite Marxist theorists, and talking to him is always thought provoking. Some of the highlights that make this interview different are his ideas on the state of higher education in the US, Cutrone's views on Christianity and church, and his discussion of possible future scenarios including climate change social and economic disruptions.

Dustbowl Diatribes 1: For the Courage of Hopelessness

In this first episode of Dustbowl Diatribes, Spencer Hess and Laurie Johnson explain why they chose "Dustbowl Diatribes" as the title of this podcast, why Spencer made the trailer the way he did, and introduce themselves. Along the way, they bring up some issues this podcast will get into -- climate change and how we're all unable to act effectively to cope with it, what Christian responsibility and response might look like, why we have such a hard time doing anything to fix our social and environmental problems despite such tremendous activity that we can dream of colonizing Mars or building space colonies.
