Bob Buzzanco: Green & Red’s Best of 2021

cross-posted from Afflict the Comfortable

Green & Red had a hell of a year in 2021! It wasn’t the best of times. It was mostly the worst of times.

by Scott Parkin

Turns out 2021 wasn’t much better than 2020. Pandemic. Political crisis. Economic crisis. Climate crisis. The cascading crises keep coming at us.

BUT, Bob and I did some fantastic episodes covering a span of topics from peoples’ history of the 1960s with Noam Chomsky to politics in the middle east to campaigns and struggle related to the #climatecrisis and #COP26 to a whole bunch of left wing pop culture. Plus a lot more.

We also talked a lot about how to the Democrats fail time and time again, even when in the majority and handed gifts like the ruling class turning on the GOP and the capitol riot.

I’m proud of ALL the episodes we produced and the guests we interviewed.

So here’s my end of year click bait list of my most fav Green and Red episodes: Continue reading “Scott’s Top Green and Red Episodes of 2021”
