Zero Squared #135: #metoo vs. #romance?

Josie Appleton is the author of the book Officious: the Rise of the Busybody State which came out from Zero Books in 2016 and in this episode of the podcast she discusses her controversial blog post entitled #Metoo: The criminalization of sexual passion.

I want to remind you that we’ve moved the Inside Zero Books podcast from the Zero Books blog to Patreon. This will make it easier to get the member’s only podcast on podcatchers. It also means that we’ll be repeating the first year of Inside Zero Books daily on our Patreon account. If you missed Inside Zero Books podcast the first time, or if you just want to hear the old episodes again, they’ll be available.

If you haven’t already you might pick up Anselm Jappe’s The Writing on the Wall or Stuart Walton’s Neglected or Misunderstood: Introducing Theodor Adorno. Also, a perfect Christmas gift for the leftist in your life might be Kill All Normies by Angela Nagle.

Hello Douglas.
I heard your discussion with Thaddeus Russell and thought, wow! A Marxist that is not just spouting the usual stuff. You’re clearly open to new ideas. Which modern Marxism is in dire need of, in my opinion.

Anyway, I’ve just listened to this episode and I am intrigued.
Josie Appleton’s perspective is quite refreshing to hear. I think she is spot on in most of ideas.

Could you please give me a link to the woman you played at 40:28 mark?

I’m going to listen all your other podcasts over the next few days.
