Watching the sustained attacks on the Black Lives Matter protests in the US by both an increasingly militaristic police and an increasingly incoherent Divider in Chief, Donald Trump, you can't but be filled with a sense that we've seen this 'undermining playbook' before. We are joined by reporter and writer with The Intercept and friend of the pod, Jon Schwarz, to discuss the ongoing events and his recent article - A Short History of U.S. Law Enforcement Infiltrating Protests.

Jon talks us through what is happening on the ground, the sense of exhaustion and a lot more.

Coronavirus – Trump vs Reality with Jon Schwarz Ep.279

Play
Read more
From where we sit it looks like Donald Trump is ramping up his war on criticism of his handling of the Covid-19 pandemic, rather than ramping up his governments response to it. So to get a better insight into these events we were delighted to be joined from Maryland via zoom by journalist and writer with the intercept, Jon Schwarz.

We discuss both the bizarre Trump Presidency, the current economic and societal situation in the US, the upcoming Presidential election and the very real worries we should all share about the future of American democracy.

"There is No American Left!" - The Intercept's Jon Schwarz on Global Struggles and the Silence of the American Left

Play
Read more
I deeply hope for a President Bernie Sanders, But, with the shocking defeat of Jeremy Corbyn's Labour Party and the even more shocking doubling-down of his most prominent Leftist supporters in media that they did nothing wrong, I figured this would be the perfect time to release our conversation w. the Intercept's Jon Schwarz.

Jon is well known for his theory: The Iron Law of Institutions. That any organization's top priority is the survival of the organization, NOT the causes it fights for. I've long wanted to talk to Jon about how his law applies to the American Left. As a Leftist, I've grown exhausted by the parochialism and nepotism of the American Left, its media and its institutions. It strikes me as an endless cocktail party with the same list of guests, and on the outside looking in, the voices of the ordinary people they claim to represent.

Jon was willing to discuss all this with me, even reflecting on his own institution: The Intercept. We also touch upon Armenia and our mutual connections to the country, as well as the global struggles happening around the world. So sit back, and enjoy the conversation, it's a radically honest, good faith conversation about what's wrong with the American Left with a voice from inside the cocktail party, and a voice from the outside.
