There is nothing more fascinating – or unnerving – than the haywire state of contemporary American politics. Peabody-winning author Kurt Andersen understands Donald Trump better than most (as the co-founder of Spy, he nailed 45 as a “short-fingered vulgarian” way back in the ‘80s). Andersen will explain how the USA’s recent series of calamities is not a random happening but rather the ultimate expression of its national character and expression. And yes, we’ll explore the implications of the “post-truth” moment spreading north of the 49th parallel.

Featuring

Kurt Andersen
