Thankyou for sharing that, the SPGB site is very good and I have often enjoyed the videos and talks and debates on there.

Just finished listening to this, really great interview about the slow crisis of capitalism since the 70s, basically about how it keeps itself alive and eats itself at the same time:

"Fictitious Capital, Real Retrogression" - a 1 hour interview with Goldner on the 'Guns and Butter' show, KPFA radio, Berkeley.

Also this talk by Peter Linebaugh at Bristol Radical History group, on "the commons or the true commons":

And might as well mention Finally Got The News, documentary about the activities of the League of Revolutionary Black Workers:

There's been a few simple, entry level political topic shows on BBC lately. Obviously the editorial is liberal but some of the interview content has been pretty good. A scroll through the documentaries menu of iplayer should turn up a few bits.

Thankyou Noah, but don't you have to pay for iplayer now?

I've been watching a few youtube videos by Akala, he has some stuff worth listening to.

This is good, shame it's at the Oxford Union.

I read this recently, it's not hardcore theory but it's a good personal perspective. I'd like to read the book it's promoting too.

I'm reading a book called This is London, the stories you never hear, the people you never see by Ben Judah. It's a good read but I can't decide if it's sensationalist and cherry picks the facts to tell a story he wants to tell or if it's really brilliant and a gamechanger. I'm only 1/4 through at the moment.

Short documentary by Louis Henderson called Lettres du voyant about Ghana, it's really good.

15:03 So funny. I love it how this dude appears out of nowhere, ensures the job is done and then disappears again. Street preachers have it coming if you ask me, especially when they wake you up every Sunday morning.
