Daniel Harper is a researcher into the far-right who goes where few others can bear to go: he listens to what the white nationalists, white supremacists, and nazis (and all the rest) say to each other in their huge online subculture of podcasts, etc. In this timely, popular, shocking but (hopefully) accessible and entertaining anti-fascist podcast, Daniel tells his buddy Jack Graham all about what he learned from listening to what the terrible people of the far-right say to each other in *their* safe spaces. You don't want to listen... but you need to know. Daniel listened so you don't have to, and now he's back with his report.

    72: The Social Network

    72: The Social Network

    This time, after a brief obligatory discussion of current events, Daniel and Jack take one of their periodic detours into film discussion to talk about David Fincher's 2010 movie The Social Network about Mark Zuckerberg and the founding of Facebook, and thus of so many of our current problems (not that the film gets that).

    70: National Justice Party

    70: National Justice Party

    In this episode, after a little roundup of podcast recs, Daniel (finally) tells Jack all about the latest venture by Mike Enoch and the TRS: the National Justice Party.  We listen in on their founding meeting in a barn and learn the *other* problem with the GOP according to Enoch's audience.  Then we check in on Richard Spencer to see what he thinks about it all.  Finally, Daniel gives Jack a short, improvised tutorial on the concept of... pardon us... 'Finkelthink', which Jack finds unwarrantedly confusing.  Fun times.  Election?  What election would that be officer?

    Correction: In the episode, Daniel mistakenly says TRS has moved to Lancaster, PA.  It's actually Greely.

    68: The Trial of Christopher Cantwell, with Hilary Sargent

    Christopher Cantwell, the 'Crying Nazi', was recently tried and convicted in a federal court in New Hampshire.  As our regular listeners will know, we've been following Cantwell's fortunes for some time.  In this episode, Daniel and Jack are joined by special guest, journalist and Cantwell expert Hilary Sargent, to talk about the trial, and the long, winding, bizarre, horrifying story of how we got here.

    67: Tim Pool and the Wolverine Watchmen

    67: Tim Pool and the Wolverine Watchmen

    An unplanned, emergency mini-sequel to our discussion of Tim Pool just a couple of days ago.  Reality, displaying its customary poor timing, waited until just after we dropped our Tim Pool episode to reveal the story of the Wolverine Watchmen, a group of militia types arrested for planning the abduction and 'trial' (i.e. murder, presumably) of Michigan Governer Gretchen Whitmer.  At least one of the conspirators seems to have been part of Tim's audience; Tim has been demonizing Whitmer as a dangerous tyrant for ages; and Tim himself reacted to the story in ways that combine the hilarious, disgusting, and accidentally instructive.  And so here we are.
    Content Warnings.  Contains Tim Pool.
