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...

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

At a last year Dean Ratched told a Reader that he was not good enough to have the new title "AssProf" for his job & would be demoted. He got a full professorship in Hong Kong and started legal action for discrimination. Then she said he HAD progressed after all.
