    Unregistered 211: Christian Parenti

    Unregistered 211: Christian Parenti

    In a wide-ranging conversation about the recent history of the political left, Christian Parenti and I examine how the movement we both grew up in abandoned the cause of freedom and have embraced not only authoritarian policies but also outright racism in the name of social justice.

    Unregistered 210: Tony G *TEASER*

    Unregistered 210: Tony G *TEASER*

    I had become a fan of the beautifully named DrugCultGang podcast and its host, Tony G, long before I knew anything about his remarkable and remarkably young life. It turns out that public intellectuals can come from the street.

    Unregistered 209: The Blackbird Interview

    I appeared on The Blackbird podcast to discuss the decline of black culture, how the alleged "Don't Say Gay" bill doesn't go far enough, the rise and fall of CNN, the real history of sexual liberation, the declining work ethic in hip-hop, the coming Dave Smith revolution, how the moon landing is like 9-11, the grooming hysteria, the rise of the religious right, the real history of the Holocaust, and how the drug war recently got personal for me.

    New Course: The History Of NATO with Scott Ritter *Teaser*

    New Course: The History Of NATO with Scott Ritter *Teaser*

    Available at patreon.com/unregistered and thaddeusrussell.com/courses/nato.
    As Russians and Ukrainians are fighting and dying over the existence of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO)—the military alliance established at the beginning of the Cold War to “keep the Russians out, the Americans in, and the Germans down”—in this live interactive webinar Scott Ritter and Thaddeus Russell will place the war in context through an analysis of the founding, operations, and rapid expansion of the organization that became "Putin's worst nightmare."
    The webinar will include a presentation and Q&A with Scott Ritter on May 2 and a discussion led by Thaddeus Russell on May 9.
    Scott Ritter served as a Marine intelligence officer in the former Soviet Union, implementing arms control agreements, and on the staff of General Norman Schwartzkopf during the Gulf War, where he played a central role in the hunt for Iraqi SCUD missiles. From 1991 until 1998, he served as a Chief Inspector for the United Nations in Iraq, leading the search for Iraqi weapons of mass destruction, and was one of the most prominent critics of the American decision to go to war with Iraq. Ritter rose to fame for correctly insisting that Iraq had no significant weapons of mass destruction when the Bush administration claimed otherwise. He has published eight books, including most recently Scorpion King: America's Suicidal Embrace of Nuclear Weapons from FDR to Trump.
    Thaddeus Russell is the founder of Unregistered Academy, host of the Unregistered podcast, and author of a Renegade History of the United States. He received his PhD in United States history from Columbia University and taught history and international relations at Columbia, Barnard College, The New School for Social Research, and Occidental College. He is completing a history of American relations with the world for Grove Atlantic.

Unique Perspective

Really great range of interviews even though there’s a political/historical core to this podcast. I’ve learned a lot and can definitely say my understanding has changed or become more nuanced on various subjects. Thad has a very open mind though I’m taking a star away because I feel he’s a bit addicted to bashing the left. To be fair, he does keep things pretty balanced when push comes to shove but he’s a former socialist so I think some of the repetitive anti-left takes come from being tired/bored of criticizing the right after so many years of doing so and a sort of subversive glee in making people squirm a bit as they try and fit him into a box. The arguments are what they are, not gonna address any of that, just coming from like an entertainment perspective.

Can’t support pedophilia

Was a fan until the guests defending sex with children started. Now with the info that Thaddeus has been advocating for teachers having sex with their students his whole career, I hope he gets the Freddy Krueger treatment. SEX WITH CHILDREN IS NOT OK.
