episode 9.jpg

Looking at American work

A big episode in which we talk to Erik Loomis, labor historian and film buff, thinking about how photos and films affect our understanding of class, from early photography to Roseanne. We also dismantle capitalism! 

Andy talks WPA photos, Let Us Now Praise Famous Men, Paula Deen, and Talladega Nights. 

Elizabeth talks Jacob Riis, panic fiction, the rise of the novel, Charles Chesnutt, and even Office Space!

And we all talk garbage on JD Vance!
