Jacobin Magazine announced their new podcast Primed about understanding Amazon, the company that is “reshaping, mediating, and controlling our lives and the planet.” Jacobin staff writer Alex Press hosts and each episode will focus on a particular element of the Amazon empire.
The show has no trailer and in the first hour-long episode they’re joined by two guests, Dania Rajendra, director of Athena, and Alessandro Delfanti, who has a forthcoming book on Amazon warehouse work, and they try to explain “what exactly is Amazon?”
Alex wanted to do the show because as she says “Amazon touches everything” from healthcare to working conditions and she thought such a massive company deserved a closer look.
