Radio Free Humanity - new podcast

Just had a listen to this, thought the analysis was quite good:

https://soundcloud.com/mhi-120639128/radio-free-humanity-ep-1-obama-trum...

"Why did some Obama voters flip to Trump in 2016? Some have argued that Obama-Trump voters were motivated by anti-neoliberal sentiment and that therefore the left should pander to the interests of this “forgotten white working class.” However, evidence suggest that this claim of the anti-neoliberal Obama-Trump voter is not accurate. In this episode we get to the bottom of the mystery of the Obama-Trump voter. We will be discussing Andrew Kliman’s recent work analyzing Obama-Trump voters, contrasting his findings with the thinking of much of the mainstream left.

In this episode we also take a moment to discuss some of the current issues surrounding Trump’s increasingly brutal war on immigrants and refugees."

"Radio Free Humanity is a podcast covering news, politics and philosophy from a Marxist-Humanist perspective. It is co-hosted by Brendan Cooney and Andrew Kliman. We intend to release new episodes every two weeks. Radio Free Humanity is sponsored by Marxist-Humanist Initiative (www.marxisthumanistinitiative.org), but the views expressed by the co-hosts and guests of Radio Free Humanity are their own. They do not necessarily reflect the views and positions of MHI."

He really knocks the straw out of his "Anti-Neoliberal Left" for thinking that 2016 Trump voters will be turned from Trump by economic populism. Not sure who actually thinks that though, and he doesn't specify.
