David Harvey is very much worth listening to and reading. He's both an orthodox Marxist in that he sticks very close to the insights he derived from the Capital but is also somewhat unorthodox because he extends Marxist analysis to geography and urban sociology which isn't really the traditional focus of Marxism.

Indeed, this is one of the most valuable things about his analysis in my opinion actually.

If you're trying to get through Capital, I suggest his online courses on his site. He offers valuable insight that can help anyone out who is having a hard time finishing capital (or at least anyone having a hard time being motivated to finish it).

The first two videos are definitely good though. (I also recommend the Zizek speech from Marxism 2009)

The guy seems to really enjoy looking like Marx's true reincarnation. ;)
