Making Sense Of The Headlines
“The Trump administration has a madness to it. It’s not a party-based system, this is where the Republicans have a problem with Trump. It seems he is doing a cleansing of the stables of GOP influences. Trump is not an ideological man. This is deeply disconcerting to the party because they don’t have someone in the White House they can rely on. Trump has a distinctive agenda of his own. Meanwhile, the Democrats are still trying to reconcile themselves with the horror of what happened in 2016. Essentially, looking at the Democrats is like looking at post trauma patients.” These are the thoughts of Dr. Binoy Kampmark in his latest appearance on Life Elsewhere. We regularly call upon Dr. Kampmark to help us make sense of the latest headlines. His take is most often not necessarily contrary, but usually a well-considered alternative. Dr. Binoy Kampmark, Senior Lecturer in Global, Urban and Social Studies at RMIT University Melbourne, Australia and contributing editor for Counterpunch magazine joins us for the next edition of Life Elsewhere.
Also in the program, new music from Linzi Jai a talented artist based in Florida. Plus, a conversation with Augustus Rose, the Chicago-based author of The Ready Made Thief. This is Rose’s debut novel. It’s an improbable yet believable story. Disturbing and fascinating. To date, one of the best reads of 2017.
