Carolyn Eichner's new book, The Paris Commune: A Brief History (Rutgers University Press, 2022) was published on March 18th, the anniversary of the eruption of Paris Commune of 1871. In this accessible history of the 72-day uprising during which the working-class people of Paris established their own government; experimented with forms of radical democracy and social change; and resisted the forces of the French state and military, Eichner explores the Commune within the context of nineteenth-century political, economic, and cultural history in France and beyond its borders. Structured in three parts/chapters that take up the metaphorics of illumination, fluorescence, and explosion, the book follows the lives, ideas, and actions of Communards who sought to bring about a new society, and were ultimately crushed in their efforts. After two and a half months, the French government under the leadership of Adolphe Thiers crushed the Commune during the "Bloody Week" of May 21st-28th. Thousands of Communards met their violent ends in the streets of Paris while others were arrested, tried,  and deported. The book is short and rich, clear and dramatic, an excellent resource for students, readers academic and non, anyone interested in a smart, clear introduction to these events and figures with such mythological status in the histories of popular resistance and revolution. It is also a fascinating account for those more familiar with the Commune. Attentive to the role of women and gender throughout, and interested in understanding the Commune's achievements as well as its limitations, Eichner's account revisits some of the long-standing debates about the Commune's course, and its legacies. Bonne lecture!

Show Notes Episode 362: I Did Not SeaMonkey That Coming This week Host Dave Bledsoe keeps checking the mailbox for his pair of X-Ray Goggles only to be disappointed again. (Honestly, you can just look at porn on the internet, dude) On the show this week we tell you the truly messed up tale of the guy who invented Sea-Monkeys. (No spoilers, but he was a Jewish Nazi!) Along the way we learn that Dave gets drunk and falls victim to Facebook scams on the regular. (No surprise there!) Then we dive right into the history of how a guy committed fraud against children by selling cheap crap in the back pages of a comic book. Then we discuss the twisted tale of Harold Von Braunhunt, the creator of SeaMonkeys, X-Ray Specs, and ardent Nazi! (Who is also Jewish) We trace the tale of his rise to child scam fame and fall because he sold a weapon he invented to raise money for seditionists. (No one tell Don Jr.) Finally we explain how even after the Nazi part came out, they still did a Saturday morning cartoon about Sea Monkeys. Our Sponsor this week is X-O Specs, which are not intended for prurient uses and we MEAN it! We open with an ad for Brine Shrimp and close with Jez Quayle who just wants to Monkey around!  Show Theme: https://www.jamendo.com/track/421668/prelude-to-common-sense The Show on Twitter: https://twitter.com/TheHell_Podcast The Show on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/whatthehellpodcast/ www.whatthehellpodcast.com Give us your money on Patreon https://www.patreon.com/Whatthehellpodcast The Show Line: 347 687 9601 Closing Music:https://youtu.be/lOf5AeFAXaw We are a proud member of the Seltzer Kings Podcast Network! http://seltzerkings.com/ Citations Needed: Comic Book Rip-Off Ads: Sea Monkeys, X-Ray Specs, And More https://groovyhistory.com/comic-book-ads-sea-monkeys-x-ray The Shocking True Tale Of The Mad Genius Who Invented Sea-Monkeys https://www.theawl.com/2011/06/the-shocking-true-tale-of-the-mad-genius-who-invented-sea-monkeys/ A Brief History of Sea-Monkeys https://www.mentalfloss.com/article/642405/sea-monkeys-history CONTRASTS OF A PRIVATE PERSONA https://www.washingtonpost.com/archive/local/1988/04/25/contrasts-of-a-private-persona/de3976fc-c0b0-4448-8e22-3c6d2edf593e/ HITLER AND THE SEA-MONKEYS https://www.splcenter.org/fighting-hate/intelligence-report/2004/hitler-and-sea-monkeys Uncited Additional Reading: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sea-Monkeys https://www.latimes.com/archives/la-xpm-2000-oct-01-tm-29473-story.html https://junkee.com/sea-monkeys-brine-shrimp/210801 https://www.nytimes.com/2016/04/17/magazine/the-battle-over-the-sea-monkey-fortune.html https://goat.com.au/pop-culture/the-guy-who-invented-sea-monkeys-was-a-literal-nazi/ Learn more about your ad choices.

It's easy to be pessimistic about inequality. We know it has increased dramatically in many parts of the world over the past two generations. No one has done more to reveal the problem than Thomas Piketty. Now, in this surprising and powerful new work, Piketty reminds us that the grand sweep of history gives us reasons to be optimistic. Over the centuries, he shows, we have been moving toward greater equality. In A Brief History of Equality (Harvard UP, 2022), Piketty guides us with elegance and concision through the great movements that have made the modern world for better and worse: the growth of capitalism, revolutions, imperialism, slavery, wars, and the building of the welfare state. It's a history of violence and social struggle, punctuated by regression and disaster. But through it all, Piketty shows, human societies have moved fitfully toward a more just distribution of income and assets, a reduction of racial and gender inequalities, and greater access to health care, education, and the rights of citizenship. Our rough march forward is political and ideological, an endless fight against injustice. To keep moving, Piketty argues, we need to learn and commit to what works, to institutional, legal, social, fiscal, and educational systems that can make equality a lasting reality. At the same time, we need to resist historical amnesia and the temptations of cultural separatism and intellectual compartmentalization. At stake is the quality of life for billions of people. We know we can do better, Piketty concludes. The past shows us how. The future is up to us. Javier Mejia is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Political Science Department at Stanford University.

Curious about what's *actually* illegal around foraging, and more importantly, why it is? We dive into a long and convoluted history and series of laws which have left foraging law as a tool to be used by state organizations as they see fit.   Foraging rights were in fact long protected in the United States early on in the nation's beginnings, but were slowly eroded away as a number of policies took hold around marginalized people, as well as the rise of urbanization and industrialism in the 19th century.

In this week's conversation, Yascha Mounk and Thomas Piketty discuss why inequality has increased within rich countries over the course of the last few decades, how this fits into the broader history of equality, and what politicians need to do to afford greater affluence for all.

His life was rocked by repeated scandal, religious schism and lustful ambition making King Henry VIII one of the most fascinating and mixed characters to influence North America's history. King Henry VIII is probably the most well-known and most studied of English monarchs. His reign is often seen as a prelude to and the forerunner of the British Empire and English activities on the North American continent. Certainly, without the institutional changes he brought, the wars he fought, and the religious differences he ushered into his country, England, and therefore Britain likely would have never risen to the status she ultimately achieved.

How much time do you spend solving negative engineering problems? And can a framework solve them for you? Think of negative engineering as things you do to avoid bad outcomes in software. At the lowest level, this can be writing good error handling with try / except. But it's broader than that: logging, observability (like Sentry tools), retries, failover (as in what you might get from Kubernetes), and so on. We have a great chat with Chris White about Prefect, a tool for data engineers and data scientists meaning to solve many of these problems automatically.

This week! We begin our deep dive into the fetid waters of the fringe center of the republican party with the first episode proper of our “Lunatic Fringe” series. The thesis of this series which will take the coming months if not the majority of the year, is that there is little if any true daylight between the “far right” as we would term them. Part of getting to this point was a concerted strategy by leaders of the right to use hate as a weapon. In their callous disregard they selfishly and wantonly employed the politics of hate, not caring necessarily what the particular target of their followers was, it was enough for them that they hated in the correct direction, but using the appeal to hatred to inspire a mass of voters in a way that policy platforms and inspirational speech never could. It also brought into their fold a new coalition of hate, of types that a more respectable right wing in the pas might have pretended to abhor, but who now was so crucial they now have to be directly appealed to.   So to start we begin with a brief history of American hate, starting with the Ku Klux Klan in its several incarnations, the American Nazi movement, White supremacist media mogul Willis Carto, Pioneer Publisher of holocaust denial, William Regnery II and America's most prominent White Supremacist Tucker Carlson. By no means are these people inclusive of every hatemonger from the time period, nor do their stories cover the entirety of the spectrum that is American hate. For every open racist screaming at a young girl going to school accompanied by U.S. Marshalls, there are a dozen or more at home silently approving of the intent, if not the method. We are excited for this new project we are undertaking here on the show, and its part of our personal commitment to always improving and trying to make a better show that provides more for all of our listeners.

From “Everything Everywhere All At Once” to “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” and “Crazy Rich Asians,” more Asian American stories have made it to the mainstream in the last few years.  But it isn't just the big screen that's changing. Recently, more TV shows representing the experiences of Americans with East Asian and South Asian backgrounds are popping up on our small screens.  We've definitely come a long way from 1994's “All-American Girl” — one of the first primetime sitcoms to feature an Asian American family. Since then, we've had shows that have ditched the stereotypical portrayals and best friend or sidekick roles. And shows like “Fresh Off the Boat,” “Kim's Convenience,” and “Never Have I Ever” are showing audiences a more realistic view of what it's like to grow up as an Asian American.      Today, we're kicking off Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month by exploring the evolution of the lived experience of first- and second-generation Asian Americans on TV.  And we interviewed a few culture critics to get their takes on the shift in AAPI representation and where we go from here.

When it comes to the enormous reduction of income inequality during the 20th century, Thomas Piketty sees politics everywhere. In his new book, A Brief History of Equality, he argues the rising equality during the 19th and 20th centuries has its roots not in deterministic economic forces but in the movements to end aristocratic and colonial societies starting at the end of the 18th century. Drawing this line forward, Piketty also contends we must rectify past injustices before attempting to create new institutions. He joined Tyler to discuss just how egalitarian France actually is, the beginning of the end of aristocratic society, where he places himself within French intellectual history, why he's skeptical of data from before the late 18th century, how public education drives economic development, why Georgism isn't sufficient to address wealth inequality, the relationship between wealth and cultural capital, his proposal for a minimum inheritance, why he turned down the Legion of Honor, why France should give reparations to Haiti despite the logistical difficulties of doing so, his vision for European federalism, why more immigration won't be a panacea for inequality, his thoughts on Michel Houellebecq's Submission, and more.
