In 1936, British citizens defeated fascism in the famous Battle of Cable Street. Almost a century later, far-right fascist forces are back. Cable Street explores the current global rise of the far-right and fascism: what is driving this phenomenon, where is it leading, and how can progressives and the left respond?

#35 – Centrism is a Bridge to Nowhere

This week I'm joined by Taylor, the other co-founder here at The Cable. We discuss the unhinged attacks on Ilhan Omar, new polling on a progressive American agenda, the vacuousness of Mayor Pete, what Finish elections can teach us about today's politics and a segment called The Book Club™ (patent pending) where we talk about books we're reading this week.

#34 – Don’t Share That Meme w/ Leslie Hahner and Heather Woods

#33 – The Fight for Public Education w/ Lois Weiner

Right-wing nationalism opposes refugees, immigrants and outsiders and is arguably the fundamental feature that defines modern right-wing western political parties and movements. So why is the left trying to copy them?
