In a new Letters and Politics broadcast, host Mitch Jeserich is in conversation with WIAS Director Christian Fuchs on today’s right-wing authoritarian use of social media. Professor Fuchs’s new book, Digital Demagogue: Authoritarian Capitalism in the Age of Trump and Twitter, explores the capitalist models that make a case like the recent one of Cambridge Analitica possible.

Letters and Politics is a show on KPFA, a radio station based in Berkeley, California, U.S., that explores the history behind today’s major global and national news stories.
