Well, we’re experimenting with a new idea here at the show: “Actual Interviews with Actual People.” And for our preliminary edition, we were joined by fellow podcaster Daniel Denvir, host of “The Dig.” It’s a “socialist” podcast associated with an obscure fringe publication called Jacobin. We talked about his little support group for like-minded Utopians called the D.S.A and why he hates democrats more than republicans.
