Struggle Session

By Struggle Session

Struggle Session is a podcast about pop culture from a leftist perspective. Join Jonathan Daniel Brown, Jack Allison, and Leslie Lee III as we wade into the reactionary hellhole of modern American media. We'll talk video games, movies, TV, wrestling, comic books, music, anime, and all of your problematic faves.
