Introducing Episode 37 – Criticism/Self-Criticism

This week we are going to talk about a hypothetical topic of criticism and how it lives in the world as a political phenomenon. On the one hand we have the ideal way in which we should learn from our mistakes and on the other we have a toxic political phenomenon that descends from Maoism. How do we navigate the facts and need of intelligent, sensitive criticism in our work while also recognizing that many of the same people who are those we need to do criticism with are also the people who are likely to hurt, harm, or destroy us. Also, and parallel to this discussion, we are coming up on a year of Anarchy Bang. What have we done well? What could and should we do better? Should we do this for another year? Should we add a camera and move the show to Youtube? Email us with your constructive criticism at
