Welcome to the first episode of our new podcast, the first in an irregular podcast from Prometheus, a new journal focused on the discussion of ideas and the debates from across our movement and society to collectively find a way forward.

In this episode members of Prometheus’ Editorial Board sat down with Ben Lewis to discuss his new book Karl Kautsky on Democracy and Republicanism that is now available in paperback from Haymarket and the usual places. You can read our review by Rida Vaquas from our Autumn edition here. Ben is also the author of three other books: Clara Zetkin: Letters and Writings with Mike Jones,  Kautsky on Colonialism with Mike Macnair and Zinoviev and Martov: Head to Head in Halle with Lars T. Lih. You can also find a large number of his articles and translation in the Weekly Worker archive.

Ben has recently started a Patreon to support his work called Marxism Translated, please make sure you help fund the important work of recovering the history of our movement.
