Episode Info: During the 2016 election cycle, the ultra conservative white nationalist movement peddling anti-semitism and other forms of bigotry known as the alt-right emerged as a growing group with influence in the Trump camp. And once Steve Bannon became President Donald Trump’s chief strategist, the alt-right had a direct line to the Oval Office. But with the ouster of Bannon in August and some financial and organizational setbacks, does the alt-right have the same power they had just one year ago? On this episode, I talk with Allegra Kirkland of Talking Points Memo about her ongoing reporting on the alt-right. And in the book chat, I speak with Jonathan Weisman of The New York Times about his new book, Semitism: Being Jewish In America In The Age of Trump.
