This snippet comes from Activist #MMT episode 33 with Mark Collins, at around the 32 minute mark, and then continues in episode 34, at around the 5 minute, 30 second mark. This is the decades-long story of how Mark discovered MMT, the week after Donald Trump was elected president in November 2016, when he discovered Steve Grumbine of Real Progressi…
 
Welcome to episode 35 of activist MMT. Today I talk with third year MMT activist and self described "old lefty," Virginia Cotts (Twitter/@folly_oh). Virginia grew up in a segregated suburb of Washington DC. At the age of 11, she attended and was greatly affected by Martin Luther King‘s March On Washington For Jobs And Freedom. She says that she alw…
 
I got a call today, pretending (according to the caller ID) to be from my local Apple Store. This is the full recording of me pretending to believe them, up until the point where they could actually cause any damage. This demonstrates how these scammers try to scare you into giving them total remote-control over your computer, how to prove this is …
 
An alternate title for this episode could be “Back to Basics.” It reminds us why Randall Wray’s MMT Primer continues to be a definitive resource for the Macro & Cheese community. This 2017 interview came about when the American Monetary Institute (AMI) published an article critiquing MMT. Randy Wray was mentioned and quoted throughout, so Steve inv…
 
Welcome to episode 33 of Activist #MMT. Today I talk with Mark Collins (Twitter/@amlighthouse). Mark is a fourth year MMT activist, Arkansas resident, and self-described "far-to-the-left socialist." In the late 1970s, Mark's wife's sister was diagnosed with ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s disease. This was a shock since no one in the family had the disease in…
 
If any of our listeners aren’t following The Funky Academic on his website, YouTube, or Twitter, this episode will change all that. Macro n Cheese usually leans heavily towards economics, but Irami Osei-Frimpong arrives at many of the same conclusions that we do, yet gets there by a different route. That helps make this such an interesting intervie…
 
This snippet comes from Activist #MMT episode 33 with Mark Collins, at around the 41 minute mark. Mark talks about growing up as a self-described "far-to-the-left socialist" in a white nationalist community, how he overcame the conflicts it instilled in him, and what it really means to be an adult.

The coronavirus epidemic has brought about an unprecedented level of unemployment and destitution in the US. Without significant structural change, it could affect people’s lives for decades to come. In this interview, Pavlina Tcherneva talks about the roots of the problem and lays out the kind of imaginative yet practical solutions that we need. P…
 
Tschaff Reisberg is not only an early proponent of MMT, but is also a union representative with extensive experience in real-world struggles between workers and employers. His story - and that of the flight attendants union - is instructional for anyone fighting for fundamental change. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, the airline industry was boomin…
 
Welcome to episode 31 of Activist #MMT. Today is part two of a special three-part episode with Joe Firestone and Graham Elwood. In this second part, I continue my conversation with PhD political scientist, author, and MMT-er Joe Firestone about the basics of the Federal Reserve (the Fed), and its two major roles in our monetary system. Part three i…
 
Howie Hawkins is the Green Party’s candidate in the US presidential race. He joins Steve to discuss not only his platform, but the role of third parties in US politics and, of course, economics. Steve opens the episode by pointing out that he and Howie are in about 90% agreement on all the issues. Howie was the first US candidate to campaign for a …
 
Welcome to episode 30 of Activist #MMT. Today is a special three-part episode with Joe Firestone and Graham Elwood. In parts one and two, I talk with PhD political scientist, author, and MMT-er Joe Firestone about the basics of the Federal Reserve (the Fed), and its two major roles in our monetary system. Part three is my latest appearance on progr…
 
This snippet comes from a not-yet-released episode with UK activist Andrea Grainger – although I'm the only one who speaks. (Since the episode has not yet been edited, it's impossible to give a timestamp of where it comes from, but it will likely end up in the middle of part two.) Fred Lee's book, A History of Heterodox Economics.…
 
In March, Rohan Grey was the guest speaker on a Real Progressives National Outreach Call. He talked about his forthcoming book, Digitizing the Dollar: The Battle for the Soul of Public Money in the Age of Cryptocurrency. The title says it all. In the midst of the pandemic, people are living with unprecedented financial insecurity. There’s no real s…
 
Welcome to episode 29 of Activist #MMT. Today is part two with of my conversation with tenth-year MMT activist and Ireland resident Mike Hall. For the past three years, Mike has served as an administrator of the popular Facebook groups Modern Monetary Theory for Real Progressives, and MMT for the British People. A full introduction can be found bef…
 
MMT seems like a natural fit for Marxists so why has there been some resistance to it? MMT explains the monetary system. Period. If we build a post-capitalist society we’ll need to understand how currency works. If we want to discuss getting rid of money altogether, we’ll still need to understand it. In this episode, Steve called upon Nathan Tankus…
 
Welcome to episode 28 of Activist #MMT. Today I talk with tenth-year MMT activist and Ireland resident Mike Hall.

Mike and I first talk about how the manufacturing collapse in Ire…
 
This week we’re bringing back a conversation Steve had with journalist and researcher Claire Connelly in 2017, which explores all the best arguments in the job guarantee vs universal basic income debate. Claire says that the American nostalgia for a more prosperous era supports the case for government involvement in employment even beyond the New D…
 
Welcome to episode 27 of Activist #MMT. Today I talk with activist Erin Taylor (Twitter/@EMaddenTaylor). Erin and I were originally scheduled to record this interview on March 11th, but she had to postpone by two weeks because of what she thought at the time was "a flu virus that has become bronchitis." Erin first describes her whole family’s exper…
 
April was the 33rd anniversary of the Keating 5 Savings & Loan scandal, so we brought back our favorite former bank-regulator, Bill Black, to talk about it. It turns out that Bill has been involved in a documentary series about banking fraud and suggested that we should also hear from the directors, Patrick Lovell and Eric Vaughan. He calls them “t…
 
Welcome to episode 26 of activist #MMT. Today is part two of my conversation with third-year MMT activist and Scotland resident, James Feal-Martinez. James is an electrical engineer with the British Navy, with which he has served for 20 years. A full introduction, plus my story introducing kids to MMT, can be found before part one. But for now, let…
 
The progressive movement is still coming to terms with the suspension of Bernie Sanders’ campaign and his endorsement of Joe Biden. We decided to check in with one of our favorite people in independent media, Jamarl Thomas of Progressive Soapbox. Steve and Jamarl spend an hour (give or take a few minutes) addressing the two questions that seem to b…
 
Welcome to episode 25 of activist #MMT. Today I talk with third-year MMT activist and Scotland resident, James Feal-Martinez. James is an electrical engineer with the British Navy, with which he has served for 20 years. In 2018, a serious injury left him homebound for the first time in many years. After binge watching a large amount of movies and t…
 
If you missed our recent episode with Professor Steve Keen, you’ll want to go back and listen to it soon. In January he spoke of the inevitability of disastrous climate crises. Now here we are, a few months later: different crisis, same chaos, inescapable tragedy. Although there is much agreement between Steve Keen and our friends in the MMT commun…
 
Welcome to episode 24 of Activist #MMT. Today is part two of my conversation with PhD political scientist, author, and MMT-er Joe Firestone (Twitter/@joefirestonephd). In this second part of a two-part episode (here is part one), Joe and I read through and talk about Pavlina Tcherneva's article, What Would Roosevelt Do?. The article describes her p…
 
Today, in the lead up to the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, I talk with Will Calloway, National Campaign Director for the Earth Day network and former Congressional staffer to Senators John Kerry and Jim Sasser. Although this is a non-economic episode, it represents the newly formed relationship between the MMT community and environmental activists…
 
As The Intercept’s DC Bureau Chief, Ryan Grim is well-positioned to assess the American political scene. This interview took place a few days before Bernie Sanders suspended his presidential campaign, but the writing was already on the wall. We all know that the movement still has work to do, but we're faced with different possible strategies now t…
 
Welcome to episode 22 of Activist #MMT. Today I talk again with PhD political scientist, author, and MMT-er Joe Firestone (Twitter/@joefirestonephd). Joe and I first talk about our personal experiences during these first weeks under the new normal of the coronavirus quarantine. We then move onto a discussion of the origin, history, and basics mecha…
 
This week’s guest is a bit of a departure for us. We don’t usually interview political candidates but Lauren Ashcraft is a stand-up comedian, a Democratic Socialist, and an ardent proponent of MMT, so how could we resist? She was introduced to us by our friend Andrés Bernal, who must have recognized how well all these attributes would serve her in …
 
Welcome to episode 21 of Activist #MMT. Today is part two of my conversation with fifth-year MMT activist Ryan Mathis, who is a first-year law student at the University of Austin, Texas. At twenty-three years old, he is one of the younger members of the millennial generation. Ryan and I continue our conversation about changing our corrupt instituti…
 
Sometimes it seems like economists forget that economics is a social science which is why we’re excited to bring the new generation of MMT to Macro n Cheese. Matthew Robinson is a doctoral student at UMKC, which has been an academic home base to many friends of this podcast, including Mat Forstater who brought Matthew to our attention. Matthew talk…
 
Welcome to episode 20 of Activist #MMT. Today in a decidedly non-economic episode of Activist #MMT, I talk with physician Jim Crudele about the growing and unprecedented coronavirus health crisis. Although not specifically an infectious disease expert or epidemiologist, he is board certified in family medicine and geriatrics and has been practicing…
 
When asked to talk about public health needs during the current coronavirus pandemic, Fadhel Kaboub immediately brings up climate change and expands the concept of public health to a degree that some will find surprising. After giving it a moment’s thought you can’t help but agree. Even if COVID-19 isn’t related to climate change, the effects of th…
 
Welcome to episode nineteen of Activist #MMT. Today is part two of my conversation with PhD political scientist, author, and MMT-er Joe Firestone. Joe and I talk about the core differences between Modern Monetary Theory and Monetary Reform.
