The Populist Plague

 

This week Dennis is back as co-host for a depressing discussion of COVID-19, what shutting downs schools felt like and American style populists.

We open the show All K-12 schools in Michigan closing for 3 weeks starting Monday

Then we take a Quiz on real or fake populist movements.

We then explore the question Historians Have Long Thought Populism Was a Good Thing. Are They Wrong?

Maybe we are just elitist shills like Richard Hofstadter all sneering a the masses obsession with theĀ  The Paranoid Style in American Politics

We then begin to worry that the American voting public is dangerous and fickle.
