What's Left

"You actually allow the time for thoughts to emerge, time which allows space for those present to think and respond, for me there is no length that is too long to listen to thoughtful, insightful human beings thinking through very layered and complex topics. It's a radical act to do it. An act of resistance to allow time to be slowed down enough to think (& feel)."

"One of my favorite things about What's Left is how you all have these remarkable discussions with no fear of judgment (or being perceived as judging) even when you disagree. It's a nice change from the echo chamber environment so pervasive in today's world."

"I watch your channel because of the way you discuss ideas - there is a sense of open-endedness and sharing of process that doesn't come across in more heavily curated spaces."

Andy and Kenny are joined by frequent guest, John Klyczek, to discuss the difficulties of sorting through the web of lies spun in not just mainstream media, but chart its extension into alternative media.

This process is discussed through the lens of a book by Michael Aquino, "Mind War". Check us out!


Where are We?

Eduardo, Jessica and Andy take spiritual and political inventory on their lives and discuss where these last few confusing and painful years have led us. We discuss the future of "What's Left?"

Revisiting the Border

Eduardo and Andy go back to their roots as the original "What's Left?" duo and discuss more deeply Eduardo's work in Colombia and give more information on his fundraising efforts to help his friends from Venezuela in their travels North.

Pre-Marxist Social Formation and Other Early Encounters of a Marxian

This week, "What's Left?" Interviews Jeff Strahl. A fellow traveller in Workers and Students for Choice and frequent intellectual contributor to our podcast. Jeff is one of the few Marxists who did not fall for the for the Covid narrative and has been a staunch critic of the science that is used to justify it and the Capitalist drive that shapes the political and economic landscape around it. Jeff has a unique take on Marxism that has helped him see through fear fog that surrounds Covid, and we look to discuss his ideas about Marxism more deeply in this episode. There is only one hitch. He is NOTa Marxist.

Check us out.


Part 1. Sex Work - My Personal Journey

Communist Manifesto (Part 2): Revolution or Ruin?

Kenny and Andy dive into part 2 of the 1st Chapter of the Communist Manifesto: "Bourgeois and Proletarians". In this section, Marx and Engels write about the working class and its potentially revolutionary role and 'gravediggers' of Capitalism. But one question lingers over the entire episode, as Capitalism descends deeper and deeper into crisis, is the prospect of revolution becoming more likely or less? Check out the episode and see what you think? 


Let's Read the Communist Manifesto! (part 1)

With Jessica and Eduardo out of town, Kenny and Andy (the two lone Marxists on the show) decide to revisit a Marxist classic, The Communist Manifesto.

Damned if You Do, Damned if You Don't

James Deschenes, a teacher in the Los Angeles Unified School District, joins us a second time to describe how his opposition to vaccine mandates, masking and testing was handled by the school district.

CCTs, UBIs, Blockchain and the Liberal Road to Hell

Alison McDowell joins What's Left? For part 2 of our discussion on conditional cash transfers and how Mexico is being used as a giant laboratory by Western Elites to experiment on programs of poverty reduction and health improvement with the intention of making people poorer, sicker and less capable of controlling their own future.

Christian Parenti's Critique of the Left: An Autopsy

Which Side Are You On?

The Sino-Russian Alliance solidified in one of the least discussed events of 2022 at the Beijing Winter Olympics when Putin and Xi released a joint statement declaring openly their support for one another. Their lengthy bold statement and threatening historic partnership is the dawn of a new era. What should we make of this? Is this the start of the decline of U.S. global power? Check us out!


Rethinking Veganism

Today we speak with our co-host, Jessica, about her evolving position on veganism and other shifting political views. For many of us, our political identities influence our individual attitudes and beliefs, that in turn affect our behaviour and lifestyle choices. How and why those political views change over time normally tend to be deeply personal, however, pivotal if we are to create a working class movement with a difference of ideas. Check us out!

Across the Western Nations from England, to Denmark, Switzerland, Canada and the United States, governments are receding on the Covid restrictions...from mask mandates, to vaccine requirements and even a reduction of vaccine passports. What's going on? Second thoughts on the 4th Industrial Revolution? Is this reason to celebrate? Jessica, Kenny and Andy try to make some sense of these developments. Check it out!


blockchAIn

Alison McDowell returns to "What's Left?" to talk with Jessica, Kenny and Andy about blockchain. Its not just about Bitcoin and digital currency, but about laying the architecture for the Fourth Industrial revolution so the internet of things can become the internet of bodies and all society can be restructured around data collection, surveillance and replacing people with things.


Our 4th Industrial Revolution is Now!

Jessica, Kenny and Andy look at the advertisements surfacing in our media and our cities that indicate that the 4th Industrial Revolution is here. It's not a pretty picture. Check it out! 


Keep on Truckin', eh!

Finally, some good news in North America! Canadian truckers show the power of working class resistance and cause the Canadian govt. to feel real fear...rather than the fake fear the peddle. Jessica, Kenny and Andy discuss the significance of this movement of the working class.


Ukraine on the Brain

Out of the blue, Ukraine emerges as a crisis point threatening to embroil the United States and Russia in direct military conflict. Where did this come from? And why now? Are war drums imminent? We don't answer any of these question but we ask them and make our best guess on this episode where Andy, Jessica and Kenny scratch their heads collectively trying to make sense of the current moment.


Anti-vaxx

Omi-Panic Drives Teachers/Schools into Arms of Ed-Tech & Bio-Security State

Teachers across the country are demanding more testing, more contact tracing, more masks and more shots for themselves and their students. In addition, they are doing work actions in order to push education back into the all-remote hell we experienced last year. Teachers think this is class struggle. It is not. It is a fear driven madness directly into the teeth of the Capitalist trap called the 4th Industrial Revolution. John Klyczek, Jessica, Kenny and Andy discuss our thoughts on this travesty. 


From Metaphysics to Metaverse: Deconstructionism, Queer Theory, and Transhumanism

In part 1 of a 2 part episode, John Klyczek takes us on journey into philosophy, linguistics and metaphysics. By comparing postmodern philosophies to the I-Ching and Taoism, we explore the ways in which "non-binary" linguistics can cultivate "non-binary" identities that erase the boundaries between human biology, natural resources, electronic commodities, and computer data.
