Ep. 122: “Our Political System Is Addicted To Pain” (feat. Timothy Snyder)

Dr. Timothy Snyder is one of America’s preeminent scholars of European history and has written compelling and essential books about how enlightened and democratic societies turn to fascism. He appeared in Michael Moore’s “Fahrenheit 11/9” after his short book “On Tyranny” was published in 2017.

After a recent life-threatening health scare that included disastrous hospital visits, Professor Snyder has written a new book based on his hospital diaries that connects the horrors of our healthcare system with the other maladies in American society that have brought us to where we are today. He joins Michael to discuss his recent personal experiences and the scary national emergencies we are all collectively sick of.
