Episode Notes My first podcast ever! Hi all, welcome to 1934: Mill City Revolt, a podcast that explores the context, lessons, and play-by-play of the Minneapolis Teamsters Strike. In this episode, I compare the situations of 1934 and today, introduce my Marxist perspective, and layout the roadmap for the rest of our story. This is a totally new experience for me and I am a one-man-show: I do the writing, recording, editing, publishing, etc. Please let me know ASAP if there are audio issues, if I should work on enunciation, speed up the reading, or anything else you may suggest. If you like what you hear, please leave a tip if you can. I need to pay the rent! Correction: In the episode I mention the post-war period as quiet with regard to labor struggles. I actually meant the 1970s and 1980s. Support 1934: Mill City Revolt by donating to the tip jar: https://tips.pinecast.com/jar/1934-mill-city-revolution This podcast is powered by Pinecast.
