Proles of the Round Table

Jan 15, 2020

In this episode, Talia of Proles of the Minyan fills in for 8-Hop (who was held up by the TSA) to host a round table discussion about the radical history of Ireland leading up to the Connolly Youth Movement and what they stand for today. (Editor's note: Apologies for the poor audio; 8-Hop had the equipment)
