I Hate the ‘90s feat. John Ganz (E282‪)‬ QAA Podcast

    • News

Do you look back on the early 90s with a sense of fondness? In this episode, we hope to ruin that for you just a little bit. What if we told you that this time period was crucial in the development of American right wing populism and therefore crucial for the eventual election of Donald Trump and the rise of QAnon? Bet you’re a little less nostalgic for those slap bracelets now.

We speak with John Ganz, author of the new book When the Clock Broke: Con Men, Conspiracists, and How America Cracked Up in the Early 1990s. He explains how KKK Grand Wizard David Duke, Economist Murray Rothbard, Paleoconservative Pat Buchanan, Texas Tycoon Ross Perot, and other colorful figures laid the groundwork for the results of the 2016 election and all its consequences.
