In this episode we look at leftist discourse about Syria, Venezuela and the DPRK, and the McCarthyist tendencies being invoked against anti-imperialists who defend the official enemies of empire.

We discuss how the West's anti-war movement has been stifled as a result of this lack of clear analysis.

We've been wanting to discuss Folkorama for a while now, with the recent statement issued by Folkorama to CBC in regards to the unofficial Ghanaian pavilion, now seemed like an appropriate time 

In this episode Scott and Greg talk about how Folkorama presents as liberal conception of multiculturalism in Winnipeg, how at it's worst it tokenizes the communities it's trying to showcase.
