Three big stories are coming out of EuropaLand this week, and Josh wants to figure out what they mean for you.

Rank #5: EP 132. SARAH JEONG & REVERSE RACISM

Podcast cover
Read more
Can an Asian American be "racist" against whites? Much of the American Left has been arguing an emphatic "No" ever since the New York Times appointed Sarah Jeong to its editorial board, despite her Twitter history of anti-white prejudice. Should she have been hired? Should she be fired? What should prejudice and human rights mean in the 21st century to the Left? Iona Italia (@IonaItalia) is the sub-editor of Areo magazine and has some deep insights.

Every time there's a mass shooting in America, Josh considers recording this monologue and then shies away.

Non-Americans and Americans will both enjoy this one-man debate exploring Australia's gun reforms, global violence, the Second Amendment, America's gun safety stalemate, whether to ban surfing, and the coming dystopian apocalypse.

Podcast cover

Professor Bret Weinstein is the man at the center of the Evergreen College crisis. At this moment of national angst about racial equity, free speech and campus protests, Bret’s story has exploded everywhere from the New York Times to Fox News—the tale of the unassuming Biology Professor who stood up to radical left-wing students and found himself in the eye of the storm. But... who is this guy? What does he really believe? Josh and Bret sit down, not to discuss what happened—you can hear that elsewhere—but to discuss how his ideas led him here: Ideas about equality, learning, justice, and Ritalin. Put down your radical queer theory textbook, and dive in.

Rank #10: EP 131. TREVOR NOAH & RACE

Podcast cover
Read more
The French soccer team that won the World Cup was pretty black. Too black, apparently, for racists, white supremacists and... Daily Show host Trevor Noah? A brouhaha between Trevor Noah and the French Government gives us an insight into the vast difference between how French and American liberals think about race and identity. In France, identity politics is considered toxic -- particularly by the Left. John Lichfield understands both perspectives. He's a Brit who's lived in the US and France, and worked for 20 years as the Paris correspondent for Britain's The Independent newspaper. He won the UK Press Awards Foreign Reporter of the year for his French reporting. Josh and John wrestle with identity politics on both sides of the pond.

Do you “mansplain”? Do you “whitesplain”? Josh gets into a robust argument about identity politics, free speech and political correctness with proud left-winger Thomas Smith of the podcast Serious Inquiries Only. What role do straight white males have in this crazy day and age? Must we merely be obedient "allies" to whatever non-white non-men say? Controversial. Heated. Whitesplainy. You decide.

Are Muslims Arabs? Is criticism of Islam a form of racism? And what is the deal with the meteoric rise of Jordan Peterson and "the Intellectual Dark Web"? As a non-Muslim, the Arab commentator Lalo Dagach is a champion of minority rights in the Arab world. And a Hispanic living in South America, he complicates our stereotypes about Latinos, Arabs, and atheists.

In a world fractured by fundamentalism, Josh steps back to ask some bigger questions. How did Christianity come to rule the world? How does Islam hold sway over so many people? And what really went down in Bethlehem 2,000 years ago? Professor Francesca Stavrakopoulou is a professor in the Theology & Religion Department of Exeter University in the UK - although she's an atheist. She studied and taught at Oxford.

Today, Josh is joined from Moscow by Russian dissident journalist Alexey Kovalev to discuss Putin's press conferences, fake news, and the future of the media in a strongman state (not before, of course, Josh dishes his thoughts on golden showers and the dreaded dossier.)
