SHOW NOTES: Get To Know Makhno: Ukrainian Freedom Fighter
From the Grounded Geeks podcast / your co-hosts Aman and Lena
A new graphic novel titled Makhno: Ukrainian Freedom Fighter by Philippe Thirault and illustrated by Roberto Zaghi inspired our latest episode on Grounded Geeks. Not only did we get a chance to talk about Ukraine and a bit of its history, but we also talked about labor movements as a whole, mass inequality, revolutions across Ukraine and Russia, Cossacks, and the role billionaires (like Jeff Bezos) are expected to play in society. Hope you enjoy our conversation as much as we did. And be sure to check out this comic! And maybe a history book or two about Ukraine.
Check out our latest episode on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, and anywhere else you can listen to podcasts! And be sure to tell us your thoughts on Twitter. The Grounded Geeks theme song is brought to you by Feyzan Beats.
