Chris, Kevin, Jason, and C Derek Varn.
We sat down with veteran Marxist podcaster and poet, C Derek Varn to talk about everything... and religion.
Show Notes

We sat down with C. Derick Varn and solved all the problems that are currently ailing the left. We reconciled the divergent currents of Marxism and wove together the materialist and idealist dichotomy with resounding success, but then lost an hour and a half of audio and were forced to restart the recording; what resulted was a meandering, but entertaining, discussion about just about everything... and religion.
