In Defense of Che Guevara: Analyzing his Life and Answering his Critics

Dr. Thoreau Redcrow is an American academic with a Ph.D. in Conflict Analysis with a concentration in Global Conflict. Thoreau is a researcher who specializes in studying armed guerrilla movements, and who has over a decade of experience studying the life and legacy of Che Guevara. His prior investigations into Che’s biography have taken him to Cuba to speak to those who knew and fought alongside Che, as well as to other arenas around the world which have been influenced by Che Guevara’s armed struggle.

Brett sits down with Dr. Redcrow to discuss the Argentine Marxist revolutionary; including an entire segment of the podcast dedicated to debunking many of the right-wing and anti-communist lies about him.
Topics Include: Che’s childhood, the political context out of which Che emerged, the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro, debunking lies and slander about Che, The Bay of Pigs, Anti-Imperialism, “Guevarism”, Marx, Lenin, and much, MUCH more!

NEW PODCAST: The Guillotine, Ep 1

We are introducing the first episode of a brand new spin-off podcast called The Guillotine. Brett from Revolutionary Left Radio and Dr. Bones from The Conjure House host this brand new show that covers current news around the world from a revolutionary communist and anarchist perspective and that has live call-ins from listeners.

This being our first episode ever, we had some kinks to work out and could not live stream it. However, in the future, all episodes will be live streamed as well as published through our podcast hosting site, so you can listen to the new show live and call in to talk to us; and you can also listen to the polished version a few days later on iTunes or your favorite podcast app.
