Welcome to Stories of Communism, a podcast for people of all ages where we explore the realities of life under Communism, as described in the memoirs, stories, and novels created by those suffering under this system over the past century. (Feedback email erik@storiesofcommunism.com).
 
Gay Space Communism pulls at the brightly colored threads of Gene Roddenberry's utopian vision, dares to ask if Star Trek is West Wing for Commies, and exposes Risa as Starfleet's Horny Jail. Cory, Rachel, Amy, Paul, and guests explore The TRUE Final Frontier: post-capitalism. Engage! [with this content every Thursday on the NSFWonks network.]
 
Hello! If you are a Srsly Wrong listener, we recommend starting with Episode 1, since that's where we directly address Srsly Wrong. Episodes 1, 2, and 3 have Srsly-Wrong style skits.

In the future, we plan to experiment with limiting the number of quotes we include and doing more discussion, doing different types of discussion, different types of skits, and different editing decisions (e.g., music)! If you have any feedback, please email srslyleft@gma ...
