Tune in to the Always Already Podcast for indulgent conversations about critical theory (in the broadest read of the term!). Our podcast consists of two episode streams. The first is a discussion of texts spanning critical theory, political theory, social theory, and philosophy. We work through and analyze main ideas, underlying assumptions, connections with other texts and theories, and occasionally delve into the great abyss of free association, ad hoc theory jokes, and makeshift puns. The second stream, entitled Epistemic Unruliness, consists of interviews and discussions with activists, artists, and academics whose “disobedient” work builds upon the themes of that arise in the texts we discuss and in our ongoing podcast conversations.
In the first stream we also entertain the questions of friends and strangers and dole out slapdash advice about everything from massaging a head of Brooklyn kale to sweet talking a nebechy philosopher and dealing with the vagaries of academic life. We also put on our Freud-Klein-Lacan-Irigaray hats as we provide dream analysis to (always already anonymized) listener dreams.
Be a part by sending us text suggestions, interview ideas, advice questions to answer, and dreams to analyze.
The Always Already Podcast is created by B Aultman, Rachel Brown, Emily Crandall, John McMahon, and James Padilioni, Jr.

I just wanted to say that I love the podcast! Thank you for taking the time out of your schedule to make this happen. Seriously, I don’t know what I would do on long car rides with your podcast.
First, I wanted to recommend a book that you all have not covered yet, which is Mel Chen’s Animacies. I love it, and it’s a pretty interest affect book.
Next, I need your advice on something. I’m currently working on my first abstract for a conference, which I’ve never done before. Do you have any good advice on writing an attention grabbing abstract?
Love the show
thanks! we’ve added chen to our list, looking forward to it! (john actually just saw a talk by chen at a conference)
We’ll talk about the abstract soon.
Wanted to let you know that we’ll be discussing Chen and answering your question on the next episode, which will be out early next week!
Hi from Brasil! Just found this wonderful thing on the web!!! Thank you very much for doing those podcasts.
Shirts… we need shirts.
