Episode #17 – Queer Eye for the Alt-Right Guy?
What does the show Queer Eye have to do with the alt-right? Quite alot.
In this episode of Cable Street I chat with writer and activist Laurie Penny about her article The Queer Art of Failing Better. We discuss populism and the far-right as a gendered issue, whether the message of Queer Eye offers a path forward for dealing with the far-right, and the dangers of people like Jordan Peterson.
Every episode includes a members-only analysis that explores each podcast topic. In this week’s analysis, we analyze why men are more likely to join the far-right, and the broader gender divide in today’s politics.
