Episode 17 - The Dirtbag Left Gets Grimy with Ethan Cox by The Goldwaters published on 2017-11-21T18:08:47Z The Goldwaters are back for a second season, and they’re here to talk dirtbags. The dirtbag left, that is. The self-styled dirtbags are a subset of leftists known for their vulgarity and irreverence. It’s a movement on the left that is tired of the traditional political divisions and unwilling to compromise on issues in the name of politeness. Funny and profane, the dirtbag left is bringing a new generation of people into left-wing politics. Dr. Samantha and Daniel take time this episode to break down what it all means for the present of the left, and where leftism might be heading. Joining them to talk about the dirtbag left this episode is Ethan Cox. He’s the editor and co-founder of ricochet.media, an independent progressive news outlet based in Montreal.
