Unregistered 175: Trita Parsi



Because I’ve long feared that the next world war will begin in Iran, I spoke with Trita Parsi, considered by many to be the leading scholar of U.S.-Iran relations, about the ongoing conflict between American foreign policy makers and the mullahs who lead the Islamic Republic.

Unregistered 171: Robert Whitaker



After decades of wrestling with and doubting the profession that is ostensibly dedicated to improving my mental health, I decided to talk to the legendary science journalist Robert Whitaker, whose research has blown apart contemporary psychiatry and revealed how catastrophic its mass deployment of psychoactive drugs has been for children, adults, and even people suffering with schizophrenia. If you’re seeing a traditional psychiatrist or taking medication for mental health, this episode will very likely change your life.

Few people convey life in the streets of New York during the crack epidemic more clearly and provocatively than Curtis Scoon. After 18 years of being suspected of murdering RUN-DMC legend Jam Master Jay, Scoon is now carving out a place as one of the “realest” public intellectuals in the game.

I am fascinated by the global nationalist populist movement—the alliance of the Brexiteers in Britain, Trump and the ascendant MAGA movement in the US, the LePens and National Rally of France, Bolsonaro in Brazil and many other major political parties and leaders across the globe—and so I was very pleased to sit down with Eric Kaufmann, Professor of Politics at Birkbeck College, University of London, who is the author of Whiteshift—the very best book on the subject. It became one of the most illuminating political conversations I’ve had in a long time, which is saying something.
