"A Nation of Shopkeepers explores the unstoppable rise of the petite-bourgeoisie, one of the most powerful, but underexplored, classes in modern society." Our discussion with Dan covers: Stalled social mobility and bullshit jobs, who the petite-bourgeoisie are (traditional & new), the threat of losing social status and Dan pushes back against the idea of the "99%". We also cover definitions of class, class boundaries and class as culture. - Support us on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/itsnotjustinyourhead Email us with feedback, questions, suggestions at itsnotjustinyourhead@gmail.com ..read more

⁠#157: Negative Philosophy, Utopia and Contradictions (ft. Bill Cashmore)⁠

3M ago
"We Hear Only Ourselves is a study of utopia and its contradictions. If a  future beyond capitalism cannot be imagined, what is the place of  utopia today? The answer, Cashmore argues, lies beyond either idle  speculation or merely hopeful optimism. We Hear Only Ourselves seeks a  concept of utopia which is strengthened, not undermined, by its  contradictions. From the dialectics of the Frankfurt School to the  energetics of resistance in the writings of the Black Panthers, this  book draws on a wide range of thought to offer a new concept of utopia ..read more

#156: Here Be Monsters - How to Fight Capitalism Instead of Each Other (ft. Rhyd Wildemuth)

Is identity based politics a weapon that has been used to 'divide and conquer' the left? We are joined by the author of the rather spicy book 'Here Be Monsters'.  We discuss the suppression of class understanding, the consequences of organizing around identity, and the revealing use of identity based language by Goldman Sachs, the CIA and the US military: a few players can change but the game must stay the same. Rhyd makes the case for organizing around shared material conditions and the power of unlikely friendships that come from such struggles. "Rhyd Wildermuth reveals the roots of cur ..read more

Famed author of 'McMindfulness' returns to the podcast to discuss his latest article 'How the Life Coaching Industry Sells Pseudo-Solutions to Our Deepest Problems': "The cultural pressures to become a self-made individual have intensified at the same time that sources of social support have decreased. Enter the life coach." We discuss the many issues surrounding life coaches, credentialism (or lack of it) and how the industry is underpinned by the deeply flawed 'science' of Positive Psychology (and founding father Martin Seligman's troubling statements).

#154: The value of Pessimism (ft. Rachid M'Rabty)

"It's time for the Left to consider the pessimist a helpful guide out of the somnolence of capitalist realism." We dissect ideas and misunderstandings around optimism & pessimism, and how pessimism is a fundamentally critical position, whilst optimism breeds hubris and complacency. We discuss the cruelty of optimism, how self destruction can often be an act of autonomy against an unhealthy environment - aka the optimistic delusion of capitalists - and the utopian concept of "Not This".

Ikoi and Liam talk with author of 'This Must Be the Place', Shain Shapiro. We discuss re-conceptualizing music through a systemic lens, how it effects quality of life, building codes, work opportunities, mental health and its near total absence in public policy. "This Must Be the Place introduces and examines music’s relationship to cities. Not the influence cities have on music, but the powerful impact music can have on how cities are developed, built, managed and governed. Arguing for the transformative role of artists and musicians in a post-pandemic world, 'This Must Be The Place' ser ..read more

"By returning to the original tale of Narcissus, and the flower from which he takes his name, this book offers an alternative reading of narcissism..." Is their such a thing as healthy Narcissism? We chat with the author of 'Narcissus in Bloom - An Alternative History of the Selfie' about how the finger waving moralism surrounding 'selfies' requires further thought: If Narcissism is the defining pathology of the twenty-first century, what if rather than it being about self-obsession, it's an attempt at self-transformation? We discuss Freud's idea of finding others narcissism attractive, attemp ..read more
