Encore Presentation: A Slow Civil War with Jeff Sharlet
This episode was originally released on April 12, 2023. In this encore presentation, host Reed Galen is joined by journalist and New York Times bestselling author, Jeff Sharlet. Jeff shares scenes from his travels across the United States which exemplify the convergence of MAGA, religion, militias, and fascism. The aftermath of Ashli Babbitt’s death, the “jokes'' from a men’s rights hotel room, a church’s Game of Thrones inspired altar, etc…this is what makes up the condition our nation now faces. Plus, America is now in a new era…the Trumpocene. Be sure to pick up Jeff Sharlet's new book, The Undertow: Scenes From a Slow Civil War, wherever fine books are sold.
