In this episode of Zero Squared the author of Give Them an Argument: Logic For the Left takes a look at Chris Cutrone from the Platypus Affiliated Society, specifically his essay "Why Not Trump"? This is a follow up podcast after three episodes of Symptomatic Redness wherein Cutrone participated in what was billed as a "hostile" interview.
By the end of this episode Burgis and I decide that, despite protestations to the contrary, Cutrone is some sort of left-accelerationist .

I want to ask listeners a question. Would you like to hear the audio tracks of our youtube videos as podcasts? Our videos are mostly video essays about left theory and left politics. The visual content is a big component of our videos, but some have expressed interest in hearing the essays as podcasts and I thought I’d see what people who listen regularly think. Let me know by tweeting to @Zer0Books.
