82 – If the World Hated Nazis, Why Did We Do Their Olympics? w/ Gabriel Kuhn Southpaw

    • Sports

Gabriel Kuhn is a historian, writer, philosopher, activist, and former professional athlete. He joins us to talk about the rise of fascism and antisemitism, sports history and the Left, the idealism of sports and socialism, David Graeber and third wave anarchism, post-modernism and its role in deconstructing reactionary biases, counterculture/DIY culture and antifascism, and the West's rewriting of history. This is one of those must-listen episodes that might completely change your understanding of history, the US, as well as the rest of the world.
