Zero Podcast #62: Marx on Machines

Marx’s Capital, Volume 1, Chapter 15 entitled “Machinery and Modern Industry” is the topic this week as Andy Marshall and Andrew Kliman return to the podcast. For people who have been paying close attention you might realize that Andy, Andrew and I have been reading Capital together for a little over a year, and that we’re coming to the end of the endeavor.

Since 2008 Marx has suffered through a resurgence. He’s often spoken of or referenced, but little read or understood. This episode of Zero Squared is one small part of a project to work against that trend.

The music in this episode includes a ukulele cover of Pink Floyd’s “Welcome to the Machine” and the theme from the television show “Out of the Unknown” and Metal Machine Music.
