Eric welcomes to the show filmmaker and podcaster Robbie Martin to discuss the incoming Trump Administration’s deep ties with neoconservatives, the mainstreaming of far right conspiracism and its transformation into a media force and major constituency, the competing narratives about the anti-Trump protests, and much more.
Did you ever wonder why Trump was so adamant about the border wall and his ability to build it? Robbie Martin has an answer, and it connects to Rudy Giuliani and the neocons’ corporate ties with the military-industrial complex. Did you ever wonder why Trump dabbled in the far right conspiracy world? The answer might be as troubling as it is illuminating. Listen to these and many other uncomfortable questions and observations in this wide-ranging conversation.
