The Poz Button

Apr 23, 2018

Things get revolutionary this week on the Poz Button, as Leitis returns to the program to talk about communist violence in the Russian film, the Chekist. Join us as we talk about the Bolsheviks, the terror of the Cheka, critique HuffPo LARPers, and have an autistic argument about what is and isn't a revolution.
