Know your enemy is great background supporting information

For everything you ever thought was wrong with neoliberal capitalism.

Interesting dive into conservative history and mindset

Started listening after your take over of one of 5-4s episodes and have binged half the episodes in under a week. Have got up to the episodes on Jan 6, and is Trump a fascist and find it illuminating. As someone who has enjoyed listening to Robert Evans, 5-4 and other political podcasts, this view is another great way of learning about a mindset I still find so difficult to inhabit and understand myself.

Fantastic

My new favourite podcast, incredible analysis of the right and also the left. It is additionally v funny and there is some great gossipy stuff, the episodes of Hitchens, Vidal v Buckley and Norman being standouts.
