Weekends: What Michael Brooks Taught Us

July 20, 2021

One year after his passing, our friend and comrade Michael Brooks continues to influence the Left for the better. Lisha Brooks, Ben Burgis, and Danny Bessner join us for a tribute. We also cover the inhumane sanctions on Cuba, discuss what left foreign policy should look like, and review Obama's PR-friendly beach reads and mixtape.

Every Saturday at 1 PM ET, Ana Kasparian and Nando Vila broadcast live from the Jacobin YouTube channel. Weekends features free-flowing and humorous commentary on current events and political strategy. This is the podcast version of the show from July 17, 2021.
