Shocking insight: the rise of the Radical Right is neither inevitable nor monotonic. Setbacks are real, and so is the rise of left-libertarian parties and the mainstreaming of views that were outragesously liberal just a couple of decades ago (c.f. views on same-sex marriage etc.). It’s a good thing that journalists (they still exist) start reporting on these facts. One of them was writing a nice, rounded article on recent setbacks for the Radical Right in Europe and asked for some input, and so a couple of quotes made it into the final product.

For all its (perceived) shortcomings, to me the BBC remains the epitome of all that is good and great about public radio. This is why I always find it exciting, exhilarating and also slightly scary to talk to them.

Yesterday, I had the opportunity to chat with Carolyn Quinn on the PM show about the city of Dresden declaring a “Nazi emergency”. If you can’t get enough of my dulcet voice, you can listen in below for the next 30 days (I’m on from 17:50). Or you can click here for a bootlegged excerpt of the interview that I preserved for eternity (or rather for as long as the lease for my server runs).
