We're joined by author Naomi Klein to discuss climate change, a green new deal and what it must include, and new developments in responses to ecological crisis from both the right and the left. Check out Naomi's new book "On Fire: The (Burning) Case for a Green New Deal" here: https://www.simonandschuster.com/books/On-Fire/Naomi-Klein/9781982129910 And if you're in NYC, consider stopping by our launch party for the paperback edition of The Chapo Guide to Revolution, this Wednesday at...
The Chapo Group has assembled a roundtable of experts to answer the simple, yet essential question of our day: is there a Joker crisis in America? Featuring Jacobin's Jen Pan, Cum Town's Nick and Adam, and of course, a remote piece from our international film critic, Matt V. Brady.
Back from the rejuvenating sea air of beautiful Atlantic City, we find the correct take on impeachment, consider Trump as a tragic Shakespearean hero, and immolate ourselves in the wicker man of New Climate Paganism.

There's a lot of stuff going on in the primaries that mostly reminds us of stuff that's happened before, and also Trump's probably done more crimes, but it's important to stay focused on what matters. And what matters is that Rod Dreher has finally updated us on his friend's wife's very serious, very real exorcism. Catch up on Rod Dreher's the Exorcist Pt. 1 here: https://soundcloud.com/chapo-trap-house/episode-252-rod-drehers-the-exorcist-feat-brett-payne-and-bryan-quinby-10918
We talk to journalist Tom O'Neill about his book uncovering new theories on Charles Manson, MKUltra, the CIA, and the war against counter-culture & the left in the 1960's. Featuring special guest host Noah Kulwin, an editor at The Outline.
We examine Joe Biden's "Corn Pop" saga through the lens of a few classic Chapo characters, then lament how Biden's long history of seemingly genuine nice guy-ness is undercut by his equally long history of shit politics. Also, the President just fully admits that Saudi Arabia directs our foreign policy by fiat, so that's cool and good.

We hear from our UK correspondent Marcus Barnett, and attempt to make any sense of anything going on with Brexit. We're then joined by the New Republic's Osita Nwanevu to hear about his experience watching David French and Sohrab Ahmari debate whether liberal civil society should continue to exist if it means we are threatened by Drag Queen Story Hour.

Will was out of town and Chris was at a wedding, so it's up to Matt, Felix and Virgil on the sticks, running the show and recording themselves for a freewheeling ep covering Beto, Brexit, Bret, Joker, Rego, and more.
Attention, skippers. There is an Admiral on deck. Former U.S. Congressman, retired three-star vice admiral, and current candidate for Democratic presidential nomination Joe Sestak sat down with us in Iowa. In this special bonus episode, we discuss China, the world bank, Iran, medicare and the VA, and which boats are the best boats.
The torture never stops. We cover Trump's plan to nuke the weather, Joe Walsh's presidential bid, a new poll that places Bernie at the top position in the democratic primaries, the unfulfilling death of David Koch, and finally, conservative faces.
We talk about a lot of shit in here, from Biden and Harris' flailing campaigns to Les Wexner's trust issues, and we even read some poetry. But mostly they requested I cut some potentially embarrassing moments and cursed ideas that I just didn't cut. Enjoy.
