American Socialists Live!

Socialism is often framed as a foreign ideology, but the United States has its own history of socialist movements. Sarah Hurd, host of the Midwest Socialist Podcast, talks to two authors about their explorations of socialism and American identity.

Paul Buhle guides us through the graphic novel he wrote about the life of Midwestern socialist politician Eugene Debs, and what we have to learn from those days.

And Victor Grossman will share the experiences he included in the memoir he wrote about his time as a McCarthy-era exile living in communist East Germany.
