Dissecting ID politics with the avowed leftist

Please welcome journalist Ryan Zickgraf to The Carousel.

Zickgraf writes for Compact and Jacobin from a leftist perspective, and occupies the leftward fork of the horsehoe directly across from me, and from whence I came.

I found him via his interesting NFL article in Compact, “It’s Not Your Grandaddy’s NFL,” which I see as a companion piece to my “The NFL’s Eggshell PR Problem.

We also share in common a background in city journalism, him with The Chicago Reader and WaPo as an Atlanta correspondent. He was cancelled(ish) from the Reader after a woke takeover.

We talk about Perry Abbasi’s attempted cancellation by the Reader, sports gambling, Mobile, Alabama, and why and how corporations woke wash labor abuses away.
