    The Democrats vs. The Anti-Democrats

    The Democrats vs. The Anti-Democrats

    In this episode, I describe dual threats posed to small-d democracy by the American Republican Party: their efforts to interfere with democracy by suppressing the vote (through voter ID laws and opposing measures to make voting safe in the context of COVID-19), and the potential that they'll ignore democracy altogether by rejecting the results of the 2020 election.

    Why Does America Treat Right-Wing and Left-Wing Protestors So Differently?

    In this episode, I discuss differences in how conservatives and liberals protest in America, and the disparity between how conservative and liberal protests are responded to. This is highlighted and made especially relevant by the apparent toleration of armed anti-lockdown protests violating social distancing guidelines in the context of COVID-19.

I stayed awake for the whole thing

And I’m not really a podcast person, so that’s something. I also learned a few things, which was a bonus.

Ok Talks very informative

This podcast is very informative. I appreciate getting new perspectives about what’s going on in other parts of the world from people who actually living in the place of topic.It’s a great source of information that isn’t a news broadcasting service. Oliver has good, well informed opinions.
