"I Am Not The Person You Remember" - In Memoriam Of MF DOOM with Hanif Abdurraqib
Play • 1 hr 22 min

This is a special episode we’re going to release through Millennials Are Killing Capitalism. Just to be clear, this episode is not about politics or social movements and falls outside of what we usually do here.

Hanif Abdurraqib and Jay talk about Daniel Dumile, better known as MF DOOM. Like lots of people, we were really sad to hear of DOOMs passing and just wanted to reflect on his life and some of the many things that we will remember about DOOM.

Jay's partner in this dialogue, Hanif Abdurraqib is a poet, essayist, and cultural critic from Columbus, Ohio. His books include The Crown Ain’t Worth Much, They Can’t Kill Us Until They Kill Us, Go Ahead In The Rain: Notes To A Tribe Called Quest, A Fortune For Your Disaster and his forthcoming book A Little Devil In America

Two Months Into Unprecedented Vaccine Drive, Racial Disparities Abound
In this episode of By Any Means Necessary, hosts Sean Blackmon and Jacquie Luqman are joined by Jim Kavanagh, political analyst and contributor to Counterpunch and ThePolemicist.net, where you can read his latest piece, “The American Farce Unravels: Shreds of January 6th," to discuss the latest in Democrats' efforts to pass a $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief package, and why Democratic Representative Pramila Jayapal thinks any attempt to lay the blame for a failure to include a $15 minimum wage at the feet of the unelected Senate Parliamentarian is 'not gonna fly.' In the second segment, Sean and Jacquie are joined by Vicki Cervantes, North America Coordinator of the Honduras Solidarity Network, to discuss the newly-introduced “Honduras Human Rights and Anti-Corruption Act of 2021,” the response by Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez to Congress' attempt to sanction him, and why the US government appears poised to rescind its support for one of its most loyal regimes in the region. In the third segment, Sean and Jacquie are joined by Richard Becker, author of “Palestine, Israel and the U.S. Empire,” to discuss Israel's efforts to distribute excess COVID-19 vaccines among allied regimes like Honduras rather than the Palestinian population, the outrage the move has provoked among progressives and Palestinians, and how pushback from figures like Defense Minister Benny Gantz could put a pause on the program. Later in the show, Sean and Jacquie are joined by Eleanor Goldfield, a creative activist, journalist, co-host of the Common Censored podcast with Lee Camp and the filmmaker behind the documentary “Hard Road Of Hope," to discuss the dramatic racial disparities in access to the COVID-19 vaccine, the shocking inequality on display amid the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Texas, and how the state's overreliance on fossil fuels left it so vulnerable to storms.

Episode 196 - Love and Class War
Roqayah is off this week, so Kumars is joined from the top of the hour by independent labor journalist Sarah Jaffe, reporting fellow at Type Media Center, cohost of Dissent Magazine’s Belabored podcast, and the author of two books: Necessary Trouble: Americans in Revolt, and a new book out now from Hurst and Bold Type Books, Work Won’t Love You Back: How Devotion to Our Jobs Keeps Us Exploited, Exhausted, and Alone. In her new book, Sarah examines the expectation in the neoliberal era that we should love our work, and documents the resistance of workers who fight back against the “labor of love” myth by organizing. Sarah and Kumars discuss the main themes and historical background of the book, highlighting the commonalities between workers in sectors as disparate as social work and professional sports, as well as the roots of their contemporary struggles in the development of capitalism. They round out their discussion by reflecting on the obstacles to and possibilities of working-class politics in the 21st century, including the idea of the “professional-managerial class” (PMC) and the relevance of Marxism today. Follow Sarah on Twitter at @sarahljaffe, keep up with her work on her personal website sarahljaffe.com and workwontloveyouback.org, hear her on the Belabored podcast, and don’t forget to pick up a copy off Work Won’t Love You Back.
