Money on the Left

Money on the Left is thrilled to introduce the latest project by our growing collective over at the Modern Money Network Humanities Division: Superstructure. Superstructure is a new podcast hosted by Will Beaman, Natalie Smith, and Money on the Left’s own Maxx Seijo.   

Debuting in late Spring 2020 via Soundcloud and other platforms, Superstructure builds on the sensibility Money on the Left has made legible, but it does so through a daring new model of left podcasting which combines high-octane critical theory with biting wit.  

The gambit of Superstructure speaks through its title. Vulgar Marxisms past and present have reduced political economy to supposedly direct material relations known as the “base.” Such approaches then cast off the remote or abstract relations of language, aesthetics, government and law as mere second order phenomena called “superstructure.”

In contrast to such reductive and polarized suppositions, the Superstructure podcast insists on the superstructure’s constitutive and fundamentally generative priority for any monetary economy. It places language, aesthetics, government and law at the very heart of critical efforts discern and transform the ways money mediates social production and participation.

Superstructure is an integral contribution to the evolving Money on the Left project--so much so that going forward we plan to release both archived and new Superstructure episodes through the Money on the Left podcast feed. 
   
To kick things off, we present episode 6 of Superstructure, released formerly under the title, “Beyond The Bellows." Framed by a new introduction from Money on the Left host Scott Ferguson, "Beyond The Bellows" serves as an apt entree into Superstructure since it nicely encapsulates the program's overall argument, tone, and stakes.
