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

First Sean and Jamie do a roundup of the news: Donnie is back and he appears to not be dead but bisexual; Dems get the Supreme Court they deserve and Sen Mike Lee outs himself as a Bordigist?

In the latest two part HIAW, Matt and Sean examine the political economy and pre-history of everyone's favorite far-right conspiracy movement. How has alienation and economic crisis combined to create a heady, and perhaps dangerous, mix of religious fervor and crackpot ideology? How does Qanon overlap with conspiracy theories of the past? How is it represent something new and different? The boys do their best to get their heads around it!
Part two will be released for patrons later in the week.
