Episode 36: The St. Louis Commune, Josh Hawley, and Global Weird Algorithms feat Devin Thomas O’Shea

We’re joined by journalist Devin Thomas O’Shea. Devin has been published in The Nation, Slate, Jacobin, and Lapham’s Quarterly—among quite a few others.

We talk about some St. Louis lore, the 1877 Railroad Strike, the short-lived workers’ revolution, and the local gentry’s revenge after the strike was put down. We wrap things up with a run past some of the more recent creatures to crawl out of Missouri politics.
