Professor Daniel Czitrom is the guest on this week's episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show. He is a Professor of History at Mount Holyoke College. He is the author of several books including the new New York Exposed: The Gilded Age Police Scandal That Launched the Progressive Era. He has also written the bestselling textbook Out of Many: A History of the American People.

In this week's episode of the podcast, Daniel and Chauncey talk about New York, crime, and corruption during the Gilded Age, Donald Trump and Right-wing "populism", "political correctness" on college campuses, and the inclusion of Right-wing disinformation in high school textbooks. Daniel also does some great sharing about his work as a consultant on the BBC series "Copper" and his thoughts on historical accuracy in television and film.

During this week's podcast, Chauncey talks his incorrect prediction about the first Clinton-Trump presidential debate, shares a secret about his logic there, and tells a story about how he was almost chosen as humanity's champion against Skynet on NPR.
