Jamie, Andy and Sean are joined by political economist and author Pavlos Roufos to catch up Greece in the wake of the recent imprisonment of the leadership of the Golden Dawn fascist group and a return to the 'normalcy' of centrist governance.
We also discuss the aftermath of the viscous austerity imposed by the Troika, the nature of Syriza's capitulation, the migration crisis that still roils Greek society and some similarities between American and Greek far-right populism.
For a refresher, here is the previous episode we did with Pavlos (one of our favorites!) https://fans.fm/p/50i
