Caleb Maupin is a journalist who is the author of the new book BreadTube Serves Imperialism: Examining The New Brand of Internet Psuedo-Socialism. On the show we discuss what BreadTube (or LeftTube) is, and how it has ties to the likes of Steven Hassan, Jacobin and the Democratic Socialists of America. We discuss BreadTube influencers like Vaush and Thought Slime, and draw parallels between BreadTube, The Young Turks (TYT), the Gravel Teens, and Green Party corruption. Caleb also responds to criticisms about his attending a conference with Alexander Dugin in 2018, and that Caleb is a "Nazbol" who engages in "class reductionism."
