Red Library: A Political Education Podcast for Today's Left

Jun 8, 2020

Comrade Cooper Cherry (Triple C) from the Machinic Unconscious Happy Hour podcast joins us for a very in-depth exploration with lots of Big Brain Energy of Jean Baudrillard's Symbolic Exchange and Death from 1976.

Part 1 covers some basics about Baudrillard and situating him theoretically on the Left, the context of the book's publication and writing, the Real and radical indeterminacy, the shift from production to consumption, shopping in a pandemic, how to confront capital that doesn't exist on the plane of the real, the 3 orders of simulacra, and much more!
