Under this tent, everyone from anti-trans activists to British aristocrats are apparently welcome, because nothing says “populism” like telling people you know what’s best for them.

Jacobin’s Luke Savage joins Jonathan on Short Cuts.

Host: Jonathan Goldsbie

Credits: Aviva Lessard (Producer), Caleb Thompson (Audio Editor and Technical Producer), Annette Ejiofor (Managing Editor), Karyn Pugliese (Editor-in-Chief)
