Professor Jennifer Mittelstadt is the guest on this week's episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show. She is a Professor of History at Rutgers University and the author of the new book The Rise of the Military Welfare State.

In this week's episode of the podcast, Jennifer and Chauncey talk about the social safety net, gender, race, welfare, and the United States military. Jennifer also offers some great insights about the influence of "free market" ideologies in some surprising places--such as the decision to end the draft in the United States. Chauncey and Jennifer also try to make sense of Donald Trump and how to best locate him relative to American history.


During this week's podcast, Chauncey reviews Shin Godzilla, the new Birth of a Nation, and The Accountant. Chauncey also offers some thoughts on the third presidential debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton and what transpired there. Hint: Donald Trump is a great threat to American democracy.
