Unregistered 156: Sonnie Johnson



I spoke with Sonnie Johnson, whose unique brand of conservatism—especially her views on racism, criminal justice, the war on drugs, and the Republican Party—could make a lot of leftists happy if they were to actually listen to her. Sonnie is the host of Sonnie’s Corner on SiriusXM and the Did She Say That podcast.

Unregistered 154: Dasha Nekrasova




I had the opportunity to speak with one of my all-time favorite podcasters and public intellectuals, Dasha Nekrasova, who co-hosts with Anna Khachiyan the singular, highly popular, and often controversial Red Scare podcast. It’s rare to encounter someone like Dasha, whose analyses of art, culture, and psychology are as original and astute as her brilliant political takes.

Unregistered 153: Magnus Panvidya




On January 17 a group of self-identified “Boogaloo Boys” held an armed demonstration outside the state capitol in Lansing, Michigan. I spoke with Magnus Panvidya, a member of that group, about the surprising politics of one of the most feared and hated political movements in the United States.

Unregistered 152: Scott Horton




Every time I talk with Scott Horton, who in my opinion is the best expert on U.S. foreign relations from an antiwar perspective, I learn more than I did from taking entire university courses on the subject. I can virtually guarantee that you will possess new ways of thinking about the wars in Yemen and Syria, the Biden foreign policy team, the expansion of NATO, and U.S.-Russia relations after listening to this episode.

Unregistered 151: Cedric Johnson




Born and raised at the end of Jim Crow in Opelousas, Louisiana and now a professor of political science at the University of Illinois at Chicago, Cedric Johnson joined me to discuss his origins in black institutions in the post-segregation South and his brilliantly provocative scholarly work attacking the very ideas of race, “whiteness,” “blackness” and what’s called anti-racism.

I was joined by the historian, philosopher, and rock star Alexander Bard from his home in Stockholm to discuss the ways in which academia, capitalism, traditional politics, and the nation-state are being replaced by digital freedom.
