What we need to know about the threat of far right extremist violence. Plus Bill Press with Susan Rice, incoming Direction of the Domestic Policy Council

 

An extended conversation with Brian Levin, director of the Center for the Study of Hate.  Plus, Bill Press with an archive interview from 2019 with Susan Rice on the publication of her memoir.

 

Brian Levin - Pt. 1

In the lead up to the November election, there was significant concern about right wing inspired political violence, encouraged by Trump's incendiary rhetoric. As we approach the inauguration, those concerns remain as Trump continues to make unprecedented attacks on  the electoral process. Just before the election, we spoke with one of the most trusted voices on hate and extremism in America about how the landscape of political violence has changed under the Trump administration, and why a major election creates a moment of even greater risk.

 

Brian Levin - Pt. 2

We’re speaking with Brian Levin, director of the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University San Bernardino.

 

Susan Rice

Bill Press with Susan Rice,  President elect Biden’s choice to lead the White House Domestic Policy Council, and author of Tough Love: My Story of Things Worth Fighting For. If you'd like to hear the entire interview, visit BillPresspods.com.
