Ep. 28: On Cuties, Polanksi and the "Pope of Marxism"

Sh*t Platypus Says · Ep. 28: On Cuties, Polanski & the "Pope of Marxism"

In this episode of SPS, Sophia and Pamela discuss the moral panic surrounding Netflix's new film, Cuties (2020), and take up the responses by Spiked Online and Jacobin magazine. Platypus members Marco Torres and David Faes join us to reflect on Polanski's critically-acclaimed J'Accuse (2019) and how it speaks to the present. In the final segment, Sophia interviews Jack Conrad from the Communist Party of Great Britain (CPGB). They consider how the 'Left' uses and abuses Karl Kautsky's legacy in order to avoid Kautsky's Marxism and discuss what the CPGB is up to.

    In the discussion of Polanski, you describe Samantha Geimer as having been “precocious,” but fail to mention that she said in court and has subsequently maintained that she repeatedly said no and asked him to stop what he was doing. This would make what happened rape regardless of her age. It’s was very misleading of you not to mention this.
