Karamatzoh Père

program: 
Audio Comix
program date: 
Mon, 09/01/2014
Welcome to another exciting episode of the 1930s radio play, The Brothers Karamatzoh – the story of a mediocre comedy team from New York City.  The Karamatzoh Brothers are to the Ritz Brothers what the Ritz Brothers are to the Marx Brothers.  And, if you've never heard of the Ritz Brothers, that will give you some idea. On tonight’s Ubu Hour, we present Act One – how Milton’s father came to America and acquired the family name.
Written and produced by Ken Jones, and featuring Rob, Larry, Lyn, Olivia, Conch, Sam, and an all-singing all-dancing Rolf.

Kathi Weeks: debunking utopianism's critics

program date: 
Mon, 09/01/2014
Joe Clement brings Kathi Weeks back on the show to talk about another chapter in her book The Problem With Work: marxism, feminism, antiwork politics, and postwork imaginaries: utopianism. Kathi describes both realistic and deliberately unrealistic invocations of the utopianism, various ways of articulating utopianism (critical utopias, ironic anti-utopianism, utopian demands), and the push and pull between crusaders and critics of utopianism.

Kathi Weeks is a professor of Women's Studies at Duke University. 20:24 minutes (18.68 MB)

Old Moles Bill Resnick and Norm Diamond talk about union organizing by way of a mutual review of Jane McAlevey's book "Raising Expecations, and Raising Hell: my decade fighting for the labor movement". They consider the official and cynical meaning of labor day, but also the stagnation of the labor movement as it's moved away from rank-and-file organizing, direct action, and using workers' power to drive social change. 18:32 minutes (16.97 MB)

The following is an excerpt from Dave Rovic's 'Ferguson Reflections. The essay which appeared on Rovic's website this week is extraordinarily moving.  I urge you to read the whole thing.
