Our Patreon supporters get access to two podcasts every week: Symptomatic Redness and Zero Squared, but if you’re listening on our free feed you’ll always be able to access one or the other podcasts each week. Further, our Patreon only video series Disco Communism was released today.

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.
