In this episode, Mexie talks with Nichole and Callie from the Bitchy Shitshow podcast about the potential and the dangers that COVID-19 poses for leftists. Part 1 of our discussion is up on the Bitchy Shitshow podcast, where we discuss this mask off moment for our toxic work culture and push back on calls to be ‘productive’ right now. In Part 2 of the convo we talk about the ways in which the right could seize on this moment to push us further towards a fascistic surveillance state, but also the incredible potential of this moment to make serious gains for workers and radicalize folks who were never political before. This is a time when we need to put in the work.
