Podcast: All-American Fascism

The New Statesman’s World Review podcast with Emily Tamkin and Ido Vock.

By NS Podcasts

On this week’s episode of World Review, Emily Tamkin is in Washington, DC and Ido Vock is in Tbilisi, and they’re joined from London by Professor Sarah Churchwell, author of Behold America: A History of America First and the American Dream and a piece in the New Statesman on “The return of American fascism”. They discuss the ongoing debate about Donald Trump’s administration and its historical context, and, in You Ask Us, take your (morbid) questions on the presidential candidates’ line of succession, as well as what normalised relations between Israel and the UAE mean for the future.

Send us your questions for future episodes via Twitter @statesmanworld and read more from Emily on Donald Trump and the culture wars here.
