    Depoliticization, Identity Politics and Protest with Asad Haider

    Depoliticization, Identity Politics and Protest with Asad Haider

    Hello!

    Today’s subscriber episode is a wide-ranging conversation Asad Haider, one of the founding editors of Viewpoint Magazine and the author of Mistaken Identity: Race and Class in the Age of Trump. Jay talked to Asad about his concept of “depoliticization,” his book on identity politics, and political exhaustion.

    *- note from Jay: When we started the podcast, Asad was at the top of the list of guests I wanted to invite onto the show. I was really excited to talk to him at length. Mistaken Identity was a very eye-opening book for me to read and everyone should read it, although with these recent pieces.

    On Depoliticization, in Viewpoint.

    Emancipation and Exhaustion, in Saaganthology

    Dismissal, in The Point.

    And a little housekeeping: we tried something different with the audio levels for this one, so please let us know if it sounds better.

    CROSSOVER EPISODE with The Dig!

    CROSSOVER EPISODE with The Dig!

    Hello!

    This week, your intrepid hosts had the pleasure to speak with journalist Daniel Denvir and his podcast “The Dig,” with Jacobin Radio.

    Daniel engaged us on a number of topics we’ve touched upon recently, including: the Atlanta shootings and the question of anti-Asian violence; the connection between anti-China foreign policy and domestic anti-Asian racism; the potential for an Asian backlash against liberalism and the Democratic party; affirmative-action fights and the enduring mythology of “model minorities”; and the coherence and usefulness of “Asian” identity.

    If you’re curious, please check out The Dig’s other podcast episodes, found here:

Intelligent, incisive, and hilarious

I greatly appreciate the thoughtful discussions and LOVE the hilarious asides and rants. While the the three members are clearly liberal politically, the perspectives are balanced between them. So great to have intelligent thinkers cover issues from the Asian American viewpoint, especially now.
