We have! But we're always hoping to share more people's stories. In Season 1 we interviewed Adrienne, a teacher in Kalamazoo

is this image the same shot as Wendy Brown's "Undoing the Demos" book cover?

Slightly different, but equally harrowing...

you're in my old stomping ground of Ann Arbor I hear. (How's the Jolly Pumpkin?) we'd love to have you on our podcast to chat about labor, academia and culture under neoliberalism. We just interviewed Raj Patel and John Holloway.

Indeed I am! But I will be shipping out of here in a couple months. The Jolly pumpkin and its truffle fries are as solid as ever 😉. Thanks for the invite! I'm down to come on the pod and chat. I'll check out the Patel & Holloway eps--John has a lot of friends here ❤️✊

Thanks to the speakers for sharing their stories. I did an M.A. (Spanish, pretty good experience) and 1 year of Ph.D. (Comp Lit, weak program, poor decision). I've considered returning to do a degree in social science but the exploitative academic landscape is deeply unappealing.

Thank you for listening! I 100% get the draw of going back to academia (I mean, I *still* feel it), but we can't go any farther without seriously addressing how fucked the system is and how much pain it's causing

Do you plan to go on the academic job market once you finish at Michigan?

Maybe I will at some point down the road. But I need a break from academia. And I'll be the new Associate Editor at the Chronicle starting in June, so I'm focused on that!
