New Critical Theory Podcast: Always Already

If you’re looking to get your fill on critical theory podcasts, another great option has recently emerged.

Entitled “Always Already,” the CUNY Grad Center-based blog launched its first episode with guest Susan Buck-Morss on the topic of Deleuze and Guattari’s “Anti-Oedipus.”

This inaugural episode features a conversation about Chapter 1, Desiring Machines from Deleuze and Guattari’s major work, Anti-Oedipus. Rachel, B, and John tackled the thorny concepts of action and agency, subjectivity, machines, and desire, as well as the connection this reading has with practice(s) of everyday life. Your hosts did their very best to unpack the Marx-Freud doublet that preoccupied this chapter’s brilliant critiques of capitalism and psychoanalysis.

We then feature part 1 of our wide-ranging interview with critical theorist/philosopher Susan Buck-Morss, and end by giving advice on setting up one’s dissertation committee and answering an age-old philosophical conundrum

Upcoming episodes plan to tackle the work of Bruno Latour, Sara Ahmed and Frantz Fanon.

You can listen to the podcast on the Always Already site, or download on iTunes.
