This week Brie speaks to Catherine Liu, professor of Film and Media Studies at the University of California Irvine & author of Virtue Hoarders: The Case Against the Professional Managerial Class, about whether the left takes it's criticism of PMCs too far. Is PMC bashing a kind of reductive class identity politics? Is it worth it to try to mobilize the petite bourgeoisie in an electoral context, or leave them to vote for Elizabeth Warren? Do we love a class traitor, or nah? Also, Catherine & Briahna debate the case for a left immigration strategy, discuss the revolutionary potential of media (including recent hit film Don't Look Up," and more.
