@fogoftruth Episode 1006: WHITE NOISE and AMERICAN DHARMA

We wrap up Season 10 with returning guest host Anuradha Rana (Associate Professor, School of Cinematic Arts, DePaul University) as we review Daniel Lombroso’s White Noise, a profile of some of the current leading figures among the alt-right. This leads to a discussion of the dangers of turning one’s lens on problematic ideologues, given how the camera may amplify their message even as it deconstructs and criticizes it. From there, Bart and Chris interview the great Errol Morris, whose American Dharma offers a portrait of right-wing activist Steve Bannon. We’ve wanted to have Morris on an episode since we started, given how we named our podcast partly in homage to his The Fog of War. Though occasionally contentious, as Chris questions Morris on his approach to Bannon, our conversation proves fascinating and respectful. What a great way to end the season! Listen in and enjoy.

As always, you can find the audio of the episode on our “episodes” page, on Apple Podcasts and other sites.
