The Liberal Within

Aimee Terese / Anton Jäger / Paul O’Connell — @tereseaimee , @AntonJaegermm, and @pmpoc

Late night adults only chat from 10pm UK time

The Bernie and Corbyn movements found success with a new coalition of working class ‘left behind’ voters and downwardly-mobile liberal graduates. Why did this coalition part company? And did the oppositional class interests involved mean it could never have been sustained? EDA are joined by political theorists Anton Jäger and Paul O’Connell, along with “the most cancelled woman on the left”, What’s Left?’s Aimee Terese, for a late night debate on socialism’s most controversial question: what is to be done about liberalism?

Lock Him Up!

Aya Gruber — @ayagruber

8:30pm UK Time

How did Women’s Liberation end up helping to remake America as a racialised prison state?

Thursday July 23rd

Salted Earth

Josie Long — @JosieLong

8:30pm UK Time

EDA are delighted to welcome comedian Josie Long for a hilarious and infuriating discussion of being left wing in comedy through the Corbyn years. As the successes of the 2017 election are erased from the historical record (and its protagonists are marginalised within the Labour Party), Josie and the EDA team will discuss how we are to remember and retain the thrill and optimism of what Corbynism actually got right.
