8pm - The Radical Imagination: Imagining Revolutionary Communism
In a world where people are so unhappy with the government, revolution tends to be the tried and true method for creating widespread, lasting change.
This Sunday on “The Radical Imagination,” Co-hosts Jim Vrettos of John Jay College of Criminal Justice and Reverend Stephen Phelps formerly of Riverside Church, sit down with Carl Dix of the Revolutionary Communist Party USA to discuss his journey to becoming a communist and what his party’s ideal plans for a less corrupt government would be.
