This week, Brie tackles her favorite subject, student debt, with two of the foremost authorities on the subject: Astra Taylor, co-founder of the Debt Collective, & Sparky Abraham, a consumer debt attorney who makes some of the best legal and moral arguments against student debt. After running through the right's (and Larry Summers') best bad faith arguments against student debt cancellation, Brie grills Astra on next steps. Now that the student moratorium has been extended until May 1st, what action should the left take? Is the Debt Collective planning a debt strike? If not, why not? How can we best exploit the energy around May 1st? And is it time to ask student debtors to make debt relief a condition of voting for Democrats in the midterms?
