The Munk Debates Podcast

COVID-19 has fast-forwarded us into a confusing and uncertain future. Nowhere are the accelerating forces of the pandemic more evident than in our democracy. We are being challenged by rising authoritarian regimes, a reckoning on race, and intense debates on cancel culture, identity politics and free speech. The Spring 2021 Munk Dialogues host some of the world’s brightest thinkers for in-depth, one hour conversions on the fate and future of democracy in a world remade by COVID-19. This episode features Timothy Snyder in conversation with Munk Debates Chair, Rudyard Griffiths and explores the unique dangers 21st century authoritarianism presents to the liberal world.

Season 3, Episode 2: Timothy Snyder

The Postindustrial Podcast

Access to health care is essential to our freedom, but it's freedom that eludes many, writes bestselling author Timothy Snyder in his newest book, "Our Malady: Lessons in Liberty from a Hospital Diary." Snyder fell gravely ill late last year, and as he clung to life he began to reflect upon the notion that without good health, all other freedoms and liberties have no meaning. It urges a rethinking of how we deliver health care in America. Snyder, a professor at Yale and scholar on authoritarianism, is also the author of the New York Times bestseller, "On Tyranny."
