Joe Clement talks to Philosophy Professor Jason Read, about trends, hopes, and fears about neoliberalism in the time of the coronavirus. They consider the strange solidarity of social distancing, online education, the threat of emergency powers, but also the hopeful prospect that people will have different expectations about how much of their lives to give to the work-week.

Jason writes about social and political philosophy, art, utopia, and dystopia at and is a Professor of Philosophy at the University of Southern Maine. Joe mentioned reviewing a work they discovered on this blog, Kathi Weeks' The Problem With Work.
