Wherein we hang out with a Marxist lawyer to discuss crime, prison, cops, and Soviet jurisprudence.
Show Notes

Kevin and Chris sat down with our old friend Steven; an attorney, Marxist, DSA member, and host of the defunct(ish?) Supreme Leap Forward Podcast to discuss Marxist criminology, prison, cops, and Soviet jurisprudence. We ultimately conclude that cops suck, prisons suck, the law is dumb, and the concept of the lumpenproletariat is something that we need to keep arguing about.
