Jamie and Jorge continue their mini-series on the Paris Commune, recounting events up until the communards expelled the national government's army from the city. Tune in next week for the thrilling conclusion, and the week after next for the reason we are making you learn this history: Chapter 3 of Lenin's "The State and Revolution."
For something completely different, stay tuned for our bonus episode on HBO's "Succession"!
The content of the episode draws from Massacre: The Life and Death of the Paris Commune by John Merriman.
