On this episode, a discussion with experts Fiona Hill and Angela Stent on Russia's re-emergence as a great power after the Cold War ended, under the leadership of Vladimir Putin, and also more broadly on how economic change, deindustrialization, and other forces open doors for populist leaders to rise in places like Russia, and the United States and the United Kingdom as well, as we've seen in recent years. Stent is a nonresident senior fellow with the Center on the United States and Europe at Brookings and senior adviser to the Center for Eurasian, Russian and East European Studies and professor emerita of government and foreign service at Georgetown University. She is the author, most recently, of “Putin's World: Russia Against the West and with the Rest.” Fiona Hill, the Robert Bosch Senior Fellow in the Center on the United States and Europe, served from 2017 to 2019 as deputy assistant to the president and senior director for European and Russian Affairs on the National Security Council. Her most recent book is “There Is Nothing for You Here; Finding Opportunity in the Twenty-First Century.” Hill and Stent also talk about how their careers in Soviet and Russian studies got started, the rise of Putin's Russia, how social and economic decay can lead to the rise of populist leaders, and how to revive opportunity in America.

Fiona Hill is director of the Center on the United States and Europe, and senior fellow in the Foreign Policy program at the Brookings Institution. Growing up in England's coal-mining country, Fiona Hill knew that she was in a forgotten place. The last of the local mines had closed, businesses were shuttering, and despair was etched in the faces around her. Her father told her to get out—to go to London, or Europe, or America. “There is nothing for you here, pet,” he said. Hill managed to go further than her father ever could have dreamed. She studied in Moscow and at Harvard, became an American citizen, and served on the National Security Council. But in the heartlands of both Russia and the US, she saw grim reflections of her hometown and similar populist impulses. By the time she offered her brave testimony in the impeachment inquiry of President Trump, Hill knew that the desperation of forgotten people was driving American politics over the brink—and that we were running out of time to save ourselves from systemic collapse. In this powerful, deeply personal account, she shares what she has learned, and explains that only by expanding opportunity can we save our democracy.

In this episode, hosts Katherine Troyer and Anthony Tresca discuss the 1975 cult classic horror-musical film The Rocky Horror Picture Show.  Episode Highlights: We talk about the fact that while Anthony will have seen some version of Rocky (staged, shadow cast, film, or other adaptation) at least nine times just in 2021, this was Katherine's first time watching the film. We explore the transgressive nature of the Rocky viewing experience (and in our own transgressive act--Anthony takes the lead on the scholarship!). We also look at all of the different ways scholars have analyzed Rocky, and we discuss the ways that the film situates itself amongst other fairy tale narratives.  A Dose of Scholarship: In this episode, we discuss John Lynskey's essay "Queer Cult Performance: Recreating Rocky Horror in the Twenty-First Century" found in the book New Queer Horror Film and Television as well as Jeffrey Andrew Weinstock's 2008 edited collection Reading Rocky Horror: The Rocky Horror Picture Show and Popular Culture.   This podcast episode first aired on October 29, 2021.

Hell & High Water with John Heilemann

In which John Heilemann talks with Fiona Hill, the former national security official in Donald Trump's White House who made headlines with her testimony in the hearings over the Ukraine scandal that led to his first impeachment. Heilemann and Hill discuss her new memoir, There Is Nothing for You Here: Finding Opportunity in the Twenty-First Century, including her reluctant decision to join the Trump administration, what she learned about his character, and his envious admiration for authoritarian leaders around the world and Vladimir Putin in particular; how Trump's disregard for the rule of law and democratic norms led not only to his first impeachment but also his attempted coup in the weeks following the 2020 presidential election and culminating with the insurrection at the Capitol on January 6; and why it's no exaggeration to say that Trump is setting the stage for another attempt to subvert American democracy in 2024. Hill also discusses her unlikely journey from a working-class mining town in northeastern England to the rarified academic realm at Harvard, the inner sanctum of the U.S. foreign policy establishment, and upper reaches of political and policy-making power inside the White House.

Disillusion in Iraq

When western troops overthrew Saddam Hussein, the argument was that this would turn Iraq from a dictatorship into a democracy. And they have indeed held elections there; the latest vote for a new Iraqi parliament took place last Sunday. Yet when it comes to actually voting, tribal and religious affiliation appear to have trumped any ideological leanings, and with a heavy dose of apathy and disillusionment thrown in, says Lizzie Porter. As with Iraq, Japan also faces much disillusionment with democratic politics. The last election saw only a little over half the voting population turn out, and it's not hard to see why: in almost every single contest, the same party has won. Now, the Liberal Democrat Party has chosen a new leader, and he automatically became interim prime minister, pending a general election later this month. It is an election nobody expects him to lose, but was the country's new leader welcomed with great excitement and fanfare? Hardly, says Rupert Wingfield-Hayes: According to mythology, Rome was founded by a pair of twins who had been raised by wolves. But Romulus and Remus might have been surprised to know that in the early Twenty First Century, the “eternal city” would have wild wolves spotted near its airport. Meanwhile wild boars and other animals have been stalking the streets, feasting on the rubbish that sits uncollected. It's all just one sign of the extent to which Rome has not been particularly well run in recent years, maladministration and the mafia making easy bedfellows. Tomorrow, Romans will have the chance to choose a new mayor, hoping they save the city from this plight. Italian politics is, of course, often rather colourful, and the two remaining candidates in this contest are a radio star with links to the far right, and a former Economics Minister, who has attempted to seduce voters by serenading them with a bit of bosa nova guitar. Watching this spectacle is long-term Rome resident, Joanna Robertson. Someone once said that when it came to British politics, there had only been three issues in recent elections: Brexit, Brexit and Brexit. This was not a subject that other countries necessarily wanted to focus on, most governments having enough challenges of their own to think about. Yet, for the Republic of Ireland, the UK's rows over Europe were always going to make their mark; the country has so much trade with Britain, as well as an open border with Northern Ireland. Emma Vardy says that the latest developments in the Brexit saga, have left Irish people exasperated, and also rather sad. It was the writer William Faulkner who famously said “The past is never dead. It's not even past.” That's something which another writer, Colin Freeman, discovered, when he visited Ukraine this month. He was there to hear about a new memorial and museum for the “Babi Yar” massacre, an atrocity which took place in 1941. German Nazi occupiers shot dead more than thirty thousand Jews there, and later, would use the same site to kill gay people, prisoners of war, and the mentally ill - some of the worst mass shootings in human history. Plans for a new museum about the massacres have been underway for some time, but it's a development, which Colin Freeman say,s tells us much about present day Ukraine, as well as about the moment in history being commemorated.

Fiona Hill grew up in a world of terminal decay. The last of the local mines had closed, businesses were shuttering, and despair was etched in the faces around her. Her father urged her to get out of their blighted corner of northern England: “There is nothing for you here, pet,” he said. The coal-miner's daughter managed to go further than he ever could have dreamed. She studied in Moscow and at Harvard, became an American citizen, and served three U.S. Presidents. But in the heartlands of both Russia and the United States, she saw troubling reflections of her hometown and similar populist impulses. By the time she offered her brave testimony in the first impeachment inquiry of President Trump, Hill knew that the desperation of forgotten people was driving American politics over the brink—and that we were running out of time to save ourselves from Russia's fate. In this powerful, deeply personal account, she shares what she has learned, and shows why expanding opportunity is the only long-term hope for our democracy.

So, now I've developed a way of talking about revolution as an option that can't be exercised, but that still has present value and I've set up a mechanism for saying what that present value is.

Does God really care about our hair? Apostolic Pentecostals historically have taught that women should not cut their hair, and that men should keep their hair cut short. This teaching is based on 1 Corinthians 11:2-16, where the apostle Paul provides instruction on proper conduct in the church.Many modern Christians ignore Paul's teaching on hair, considering it a cultural relic of a bygone era. In this episode, Dr. David K. Bernard reviews what the Bible says about hair and its role in gender distinction and explains why believers should take Paul's words seriously if we want to faithfully follow the practice of the New Testament church and reflect God's plan for humanity.For more information on the topic of Christians and hair, see Dr. Bernard's books In Search of Holiness, Practical Holiness: A Second Look, and The Apostolic Church in the Twenty First Century.

Emma hosts writer Alex Hochuli, co-host of the Aufhebunga Bunga podcast, to discuss his recent book The End of the End of History: Politics in the Twenty-First Century that he co-authored with George Hoare and Phillip Cunliffe, taking on the establishment and breakdown of complete neoliberal hegemony over the last three decades. Alex and Emma situate our current moment at the end of decades of neoliberal consensus that have failed to give us the tools to comprehend actual contestation over what society should look like. Jumping back to the ‘90s and George H.W. Bush, they explore the birth of the neoliberal world order in the shadow of the end of the Cold War, built on complete hegemony in the West, and complete submission to hegemony for the rest. They take on this view of neoliberal politics and globalization as a “force of nature,” rather than policy choices, with the few forms of counterculture focused on carving out their own spaces in society rather than genuine social change. Hochuli then looks at the 2008 financial crisis as the breaking point of a building lack of confidence and disillusionment of neoliberalism and capitalism, and the response of Occupy as an important movement of the left from taking on a minoritarian approach to speaking for and with the 99%. However, the return of politics came without the tools to understand and analyze our moment as it built towards the victories of Trump and Brexit (among other right populist wins), resulting in a complete breakdown of the neoliberal media and elites, focusing on conspiracy theories about Russia rather than actually dealing with the rejection of neoliberal hegemony. Next, they touch on cultures of anti-politics (“oh they're all corrupt”) and how the neoliberal hegemony and supposed “end of history” gave political disgruntlement no place to go, before Alex dives into the case study of Brazil over the last decade or so, with their 2013 uprisings for social policies actively being detached from party politics, and giving rise to a complete distrust of democracy and politics in favor of judicial and technocratic rule, ultimately seeing the election of Bolsonaro. He and Emma jump from this back to the US and our handling of COVID, looking at Biden's presidency as a form of technopopulism, giving Trump's agenda a professional sheen while actual policy discussion is drowned out by culture war. Emma also takes on Manchin's hypocritical “entitlement society” objections, as well as Bernie's pitch-perfect response. And in the Fun Half: Brandon runs through his official review of the “comedy” (term used loosely) of cultural miscommunication that is CBS's “the United States of Al,” and he, Emma, Matt, and Matt discuss the passing of the “spectre of dickishness” from AZ Senator to AZ Senator as Sinema finally responds to questioning by only correcting her designation as a “Congresswoman.” Antoine from LA calls in about the difficulties of discussing leftism with a close victim of the Khmer Rouge, Yang and Tucker bond over their exploit-hate relationship with the immigrant workforces, and Zach from Missouri calls in regarding his unsuccessful attempts at converting his anti-vax mother. They also discuss Ben Shapiro, from his “cultural” race science to his inconsistent bowel policies, Hamish from Tahoe takes on Emma “Veganland” (not a vegan) and her vegan-superiority-complex, plus, your calls and IMs!

About This Episode: Bjørn Andreas Bull-Hansen is a bestselling Norwegian novelist. He has written in many genres, but is now working on his ongoing Jomsviking series. It was an overnight success in Norway and was almost instantly sold to several countries. Bull-Hansen was born in Oslo, Norway, in 1972, and grew up in a suburb that was, at the time, quite rural. And here comes a big cliché: it was not a very happy childhood. He spent most of his youthful years excluded from social interaction with other kids his age. However, growing up in isolation makes one a good observer. Spending the majority of his time alone, Bull-Hansen began building imaginative worlds and learning about Norse mythology at a very early age. He knew he wanted to be an explorer, an actor, or a novelist. Then came the game changer. Bull-Hansen started lifting weights when he was 13 years old, and after never being very good at sports, he discovered he could do things very few 13-year-olds could! It gave Bull-Hansen the confidence to lift his head and to start pursuing his dreams. Unfortunately, while nearing the completion of his economics studies, Bull-Hansen was in a car accident. Bull-Hansen was back in the gym only 7 days after the accident. However, due to neurological trauma, parts of his neck and shoulders were numb and Bull-Hansen lost his place on the Norwegian Junior Powerlifting team. He was 23. Unwilling to accept defeat, Bull-Hansen turned to his other passion – writing. Already having been writing for 6 years, he submitted his first manuscript to a publisher, and his first book was published after only a few months. Several years later, Bull-Hansen experiences a major breakthrough as an international author with the critically acclaimed Jomsviking. Still, Bull-Hansen chooses to live his life with a steadfast conviction to his own virtues, all of which are grounded in Viking culture. Now a father and living on a fjord once ripe with vicious and deadly battles, with the history of his people at his feet, Bull-Hansen's connection with his past is awoken each time he steps outside his home or is on the water in his sailing yacht.   Find out more about Bjørn at: Interview with Edwin Dearborn - https://www.jeremyryanslate.com/884 Bjørn's website - https://bull-hansen.com/  What Really Happened in Wuhan A Virus Like No Other, Countless Infections, Millions of Deaths - https://www.audible.com/pd/What-Really-Happened-in-Wuhan-Audiobook/B09DQYZJG8?qid=1633317282&sr=1-1&ref=a_search_c3_lProduct_1_1&pf_rd_p=83218cca-c308-412f-bfcf-90198b687a2f&pf_rd_r=KVNN4JS0ZGQZFEV71XG1 Bjørn's Youtube Channel - https://www.youtube.com/c/TheVikingBushcrafter Check out our YouTube Channel: Jeremyryanslatebiz Make Extraordinary a reality: jeremyryanslate.com/extraordinary See the Show Notes: www.jeremyryanslate.com/921 Sponsors: Gusto: This episode is sponsored by Gusto.

They are seen as supporters of the continued authority of the senate. The twenty-first century doesn't apply such generous labels, except in sarcasm. "Once, leftists were accused of harbouring more rarefied tastes. In Ireland, smoked-salmon socialist used to be the go-to insult. In South Africa, it's Gucci communist. In Argentina, it's hippie con osde – a hippie with a private health plan. "The classic British term is champagne socialist or, if you want to push it a little further, Bolly Bolshevik, for the lady or gentleman with an appetite for Bogdanov and Bollinger. In Australia, it's chardonnay socialist, because enjoying a white wine while advocating a society in which the community owns and controls the means of production, distribution and exchange is just not on. Such political ambitions should be accompanied by cheap ale, served in flat caps, with a lump of coal for dipping. "In France and Germany, the equivalents retain echoes of earlier times. The salonkommunist or salonbolschewist is the German 'drawing-room communist,' who speaks the gospel of Marx from the comfort of his book-lined abode, rather than preaching Engels from deep inside a Berlin techno club. The French term gauche caviar, or 'caviar left,' now conjures up almost unimaginable decadence, a 1980s world occupied also by the US 'limousine liberal'. "The rise of Bernie Sanders and Jeremy Corbyn has prompted the creation of a new set of pejorative terms based on the supposed characteristics of those leaders and their supporters. Corbynista echoes Chavista, because, of course, Corbyn loves Venezuela. Momentum is referred to as Maomentum. Tankie, a term used to describe Stalinists, is making an online comeback. Sanders supporters were dubbed Bernie bros, even as the Vermont senator picked up more support among young women than Hillary Clinton. Now, the US has brocialists, dudes who don't let their belief in democratic socialism get in the way of being sexist." —https://www.theguardian.com/politics/shortcuts/2017/oct/23/latte-socialist-gauche-caviar-how-spot-good-time-leftwingers-around-world

About This Episode: Tony Bradshaw believes there should only be 2 types of people in the world: millionaires and future millionaires. He helps move his future millionaires from a scarcity to abundance mindset and lifestyle. Tony grew up in a lower-income neighborhood in Nashville, TN, and in his early 20's, he realized he was mis-managing his money and knew something needed to change. That's when he set out to learn how to handle money better. After learning how to handle money at age 25, Tony made his millionaire choice and created his millionaire plan. He accomplished his goal of becoming a millionaire by age 40. Now he's helping everyone he can make the choice and create their own millionaire plan. Tony also has years of financial experience by running business development for Dave Ramsey. When he's not building future millionaires, he enjoys spending time with his wife, 6 kids and relaxing with his backyard chickens.

What is our right to be desired? How are our sexual desires shaped by the society around us? Is consent sufficient for a sexual relationship? In the wake of the #MeToo movement, public debates about sex work, and the rise in popularity of “incel culture”, philosopher Amia Srinivasan explores these questions and more in her new book of essays, The Right to Sex: Feminism in the Twenty-First Century. Amia's interests lay in how our internal perspectives and desires are shaped by external forces, and the question of how we might alter those forces to achieve a more just, equitable society. Amia joined Tyler to discuss the importance of context in her vision of feminism, what social conservatives are right about, why she's skeptical about extrapolating from the experience of women in Nordic countries, the feminist critique of the role of consent in sex, whether disabled individuals should be given sex vouchers, how to address falling fertility rates, what women learned about egalitarianism during the pandemic, why progress requires regress, her thoughts on Susan Sontag, the stroke of fate that stopped her from pursuing a law degree, the “profound dialectic” in Walt Whitman's poetry, how Hinduism has shaped her metaphysics, how Bernard Williams and Derek Parfitt influenced her, the anarchic strain in her philosophy, why she calls herself a socialist, her next book on genealogy, and more.

This week I spoke with John Higgs! John is a writer, journalist and cultural historian. He writes extensively about William Blake and counter-cultural figures like Alan Moore and Timothy Leary. "William Blake vs the World" and "The Future Starts Here: Adventures in the Twenty-First Century" are just two examples of his work. I am reading some of John's books on William Blake at the moment and I'm really enjoying them. In this episode we discuss the magic and mysticism of William Blake and how reading his work can help us understand: the world in a more imaginative way, our various models of reality, the sublime and the divine, counter-cultural figures like the electronic band KLF who set fire to a million pounds, pragmatic optimism, and finding a new approach to dealing with the mysteries of the world!

You're Already Living in China's World Pt 1: The Lab Leak Lies

When the pandemic began eighteen months ago, anyone who dared suggest that the virus came from a lab in Wuhan, China, was dismissed as a crank, or otherwise accused of racism, xenophobia, and refusing to “believe science.” Why was this highly plausible theory unsayable? On today's podcast, Josh Rogin, a foreign policy columnist for the Washington Post and author of “Chaos Under Heaven: Trump, Xi and the Battle for the Twenty-First Century” answers that question. He makes the powerful case that it all comes back to the power of the Chinese Communist Party, which he likens to the Gambino crime family. If the Gambinos, that is, were running one of the richest countries in the world. Josh is a phenomenal guest and we couldn't contain our conversation to just one episode. So today, in Part One, a look into what went down in Wuhan and Washington during the fateful month of January 2020. We show how the “Lab Leak Theory,” due in big part to Josh's reporting, went from a fringe conspiracy theory to a credible explanation for the virus that continues to ravage the planet. Also discussed: Anthony Fauci, Donald Trump, Rand Paul, Peter Daszak, Xi Jinping, Elaine Chao, Henry Kissinger. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Emma hosts Hahrie Han, director of the SNF Agora Institute and Professor of Political Science at Johns Hopkins University, to discuss her recent book Prisms of the People: Power & Organizing in Twenty-First-Century America, that she co-authored with Elizabeth McKenna and Michelle Oyakawa. Hahrie situates her relationship with organizing, starting as a child of Korean immigrants in Texas, growing as she became involved in student activism, and eventually being juxtaposed with the electoral work she put in on campaigns in the 90s. Emma and her jump into the importance of self-determination, walking through her first-hand experiences in fights against SB1070, Prop 206, and even a fight for higher minimum wages in Arizona, and looking at the importance of having short terms goals in building towards a larger-scale project. They wrap up the interview reflecting on why recent movement campaigns have failed to capitalize on lingering inspiration, and explore the case study of the activism that got us prohibition. Emma wraps up the first half by discussing Sam's vacation and touching on Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Milley's response to the media fulling buying into US intelligence's clamor for continued power in the Middle East. And in the Fun Half: The MR crew are joined by Brandon Sutton as always, to discuss sick day tactics, and Dave from Jamaica gives his own input to inspire Brandon to go full Foucault. Next, they jump into the Islamophobic fear-mongering around refugee acceptance, from Stinchfields and Hannitys to Bill Mahers and Sam Harrises, Alex from NY returns with two fun fueled matchups, before Brian from AZ engages with Bill Maher's religion takes, and reflects on the 9/11 attackers calling him devil by name (??). They also cover some of Bill O'Reilly's takes on American Marxism (aka Disney going woke) and Dinesh D'Souza gives credit to the Taliban where it's due, plus, your calls and IMs!
