37: Andrew Marantz - Surfing the Wake of The Woke

The Portal

New Yorker writer and book author Andrew Marantz and Eric became friends shortly before the 2016 election when Andrew set off to write the first profile of Eric and Geometric Unity, his theory of Physics. Coming from similar ethnic and politically progressive backgrounds they found plenty of common cause. With the rise of Trump, they then found themselves in subtly different places with Andrew more directly concerned with the rise of the Alt-right and Eric convinced that the Alt-right was likely a response to the transformation of the Democratic Party begun under Bill Clinton into a serious threat to National unity. In this conversation from November of 2019 in New York City, they discuss Andrew's theories of the rise of the alt-right and internet trolling as well as the research from his 2019 book Antisocial:  Online Extremists, Techno-Utopians, and the Hijacking of the American Conversation. They also explore the contradictions between traditional and woke versions of progressivism and where all of this may be leading the republic. Particularly interesting given the 2019 time of this conversation is the concern with civil unrest and revolution which was shortly to play out in the American street a few months later.  Thanks To Our SponsorsPitney Bowes: FREE 30-day trial PLUS a FREE 10-pound scale - pb.com/PORTALSkillshare: 2 free months of Premium Membership at Skillshare.com/PORTALTheragun: Try Theragun RISK-FREE for THIRTY-DAYS - Theragun.com/PORTALWine Access: Get $20 off your first purchase of $50 or more - Wineaccess.com/PORTALSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
