Austin Hayden Smidt (Political philosopher, filmmaker, actor,
writer, podcast host, and all around wonderful guy) joins Breht to
discuss the philosophy and political relevance of
post-structuralism, postmodernism, and post-postmodernism aka
"metamodernism". They explore the connections between these
philosophies and Leftism, exploring both the contradictions between
postmodernism and Marxism as well as the connection between
postmodernism and post-left anarchism! Topics include: Liberation
Theology, Sartre, Irony, Sincerity, Neoliberalism,
Post-Postmodernism, Meta-Narratives, how social media shapes our
psychology, and more!
