INTRO:
In this episode of InForm:Podcast Neil & Jared go through questions, comments, criticisms, and concerns regarding psychoanalysis and revolutionary politics.

BACKGROUND:
Neil & Jared both participate on the Discord servers for Red Library & The Regrettable Century. Recently some of the other members of those communities asked some questions about the revolutionary potential (or the lack thereof) of psychoanalysis.

Given that the communication on the discord servers was only text-based we thought it would be interesting & useful to continue working through some of the questions, comments, criticisms, and concerns the original conversation brought up.
