Will Be Wild is a new 8-part series about the forces that led to the January 6th insurrection and what comes next. Through in-depth stories from a wide range of characters – from people who tried to stop the attack to those who took part – hosts Andrea Bernstein and Ilya Marritz explore the ongoing effort to bring autocracy to America, the lasting damage that effort is doing to our democracy, and the fate of our attempts to combat those anti-democratic forces. Because January 6th wasn't the end of the story, January 6th was just a practice run.

    A teenager in Wylie, TX sends a tip to the FBI about his father's potentially violent plans.

    Boots on the Ground

    Many of the men and women who heeded Trump’s call to march on the Capitol on January 6th had one surprising thing in common: nearly 1 in 7 of those charged for crimes related to the insurrection had a background in the military or law-enforcement. Why did the government look away as forces of radicalization spread amongst the military and in the public at large? And how prepared is the government to face that threat as it continues to grow today?

    Homeland

    The Department of Homeland Security is responsible for protecting the United States against threats both foreign and domestic. But despite mounting evidence about the spread of homegrown radicalism in the U.S., no warnings were issued by DHS about the potential violence on January 6th. Two agency insiders help us understand why.

    The War on Pineapple

    Disinformation about the 2020 election motivated thousands to march on the Capitol on January 6th. We follow one of those lies – about suitcases filled with fake ballots — and meet two of the men who tried to stop it. But as disinformation continues to spread through our society, is there anything we can do to keep straight what is fact and what is fiction?
