“Revolution and Ideology” was started by Nick Lee and Jared Benson, university instructors of sociology and history respectively. We currently co-teach two humanities courses titled “Resistance and Revolution” and “Ideology and Isms.” In the first, we explore the theories and historical examples of revolution and social change. In the latter, we examine various historical and modern ideologies and the ways in which they motivate how people think and behave today.
As we began research for a third course titled “Stateless Societies,” we decided to create a podcast that follows our research process and covers the topics that we’ll be discussing in the course. In addition, it’s a personal journey of two previously devout Marxists foraying into Anarchist philosophy and history.
