Thaddeus Russell was raised in Berkeley, California, by parents he describes as professional Marxist revolutionaries. His experiences with the academic establishment at Barnard College (the women's college at Columbia University) have become legendary. He's hard to pigeonhole ideologically, which makes him a compelling guest.
We discuss a wide range of topics: labor unions, the Protestant work ethic (he's against), Donald Trump, what's missing from university life, and how Thad went from genuinely not understanding how anyone could be a conservative or a libertarian to being a regular listener of this very podcast! (But still not a libertarian.)
