• The Host ~ Shea Bilé •
• Guest Co-host ~ Romie Romak •

 

On this episode of Deferred Gnosis –

 

The great American political tragedy – the presidential race, the various characters involved, the evolution of the American identity, and how this all reflects on the cultural zeitgeist.

 

We passionately investigate the current political play –
  • Setting the stage – the nature of the cynicism toward American politics.
  • The red and blue reality show, a new form of tragic entertainment.
  • Policy vs. Punditry.
  • Role call – deconstructing the cast of characters in the current political play.
  • Ted Cruz and the celebration of transphobia.
  • Donald Trump and the Freedom Girls.
  • Women of the race – Carly vs. Clinton.
  • Make America Great – the celebration of a regressive dream.
  • Purism is patriotic – the nativism of the right.
  • The future of American enmity – finding ethics amidst political entropy.
