    Episode 1: The Explosion

    Episode 1: The Explosion

    In a remote desert town in the summer of 2016, a bombing took place and almost no one noticed. When Glenn Jones killed himself and blew up the family home of Josh Cluff, no one thought much of it. But what if it was something more? What if the bombing was actually a small window into the world of extremist violence that's been fueled by the anti-government movement?

    Episode 2: The Bomber

    The 2016 bombing in Nevada is far from the only act of violence related to the self-described Patriot movement. In fact, it wasn't even the only bomb to blow up that year. Another explosion happened that summer near a Bureau of Land Management cabin in Arizona — and the man who pushed the detonator tells us what made him do it.

    Episode 3: The Martyr

    Episode 3: The Martyr

    When police killed Arizona rancher LaVoy Finicum in 2016 during the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge takeover, a grand jury deemed it a justified shooting. But for the Patriot Movement, it was an assassination. They call Finicum a martyr. So, what happens when people who have a deep-seated mistrust of the government finally have a justification to take action?

    Episode 4: The Homeland

    Stevens County, Washington, has been the origin point for a litany of white supremacist and anti-government violence over the past 40 years. In a time of extreme political rhetoric and conspiratorial thinking, we explore how the Patriot movement is workshopping some of their most radical ideas here and who is being recruited into the movement.

    Episode 5: The Politician

    Episode 5: The Politician

    The violence perpetrated by the anti-government movement has long been fringe and rare. But more politicians are starting to accept extremist language and ideas as a part of their platform. One of those people is Washington state Rep. Matt Shea. He says he sees a chance for a 51st state in the Northwest — a place that would be governed by strict biblical laws and made up almost entirely of white people.

Fascinating Journalism

Deep dive into extremism. Was much more satisfying to listen to than a lot of the surface-level content and out there.

Fascinating!

I regularly see Ammon Bundy in person and on the news and I thought I knew quite a bit about him and his family. I was riveted by this podcast. Agree with previous comments that I would love to see a follow up on Amin’s antics in Idaho the last few years!

More, please!!

Incredible, and well done. Hits way too close to home for this 6th generation Idahoan.
Pleeeeeeease do an update, since Ammon F. Bundy is now running for Governor in Idaho. Embarrassed to admit that.
