Politics. Power. Popular Culture. And other stuff, probably.
In this series, we’re like super nerdy philosophical DJs: mashing up Serious Academic Questions with the most topical news and trends in pop culture. Each week, we’ll tackle a new topic and collide it with ‘critical theory’ (we’re pretty loose with our definitions, though, so expect the unexpected). Our aim is to destroy the stuff we know, explore the stuff we don’t and unsettle everything we think we know about the world. We take the obvious, the commonsensical, the certain, and then we rip it all to shreds. We are your theory doctors and we are always on call.

Extremely good

I have started listening from the beginning, and so far the topics and mode of discussion are extremely approachable and insightful.

Insightful and thought-provoking

There are many podcasts giving their weekly views on current events, but Dr. Raychaudhuri and Dr. Fitzpatrick’s academic credentials and application of critical theory to the conversations of the day make for deeply thought-provoking, enjoyable and informative listening. They seem to get to the heart of the issue every time.
