This week's episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show features writer Jared Yates Sexton.
Jared's first-hand reporting on the Donald Trump phenomenon has been featured by The New York Times
and The New Republic
In this week's installment of the podcast, Jared and Chauncey talk about their experiences at Donald Trump's political rodeos/rallies, how the American Il Duce has crated a "safe space" for open expressions of white racism and bigotry, political polarization, and Jared's recent seven-hour long car trip with a Republican to attend a Hillary Clinton rally.
Jared and Chauncey also do some mutual sharing about growing up poor and working class and the complications of the color line.
During this week's episode of the show, Chauncey summons W.E.B. Du Bois as he offers some extended commentary and analysis about how America's police have declared war on black people, as well as some thoughts on last night's Dallas sniper attacks.
