The Realignment
★★★★

Great new addition to my regular podcasts

I’ve been searching far and wide for an actual non-crazy reality based right leaning podcast that addresses substantive issues from a conservative perspective. A real populist right podcast that discussed and had nuanced conversations about culture, finance, and all things political who’s main agenda was not to promote outrage and demonize anything that opposed Trump. I suppose the closest I’ve found so far are The Fifth Column or Useful Idiots. They aren’t promoted as right wing podcasts but definitely do not favor either side of the isle, bash on both their houses and come out after listening that a big lefty like myself agrees with 90% of the populists right economic agenda. If leftists are able to put aside on all their culture war and “woke” agenda, there definitely is a very substantial voting block that could advocate for a real middle class revolution. I often tell myself that there is plenty of time to fight about all the cultural disagreements after major policy has been enacted that compensates workers who’s pay has not been tied to the gains in productivity over the past 40 years. And once no one has to worry about going bankrupt due to unexpected medical expenses, and finally a job with an employer that pays well enough, with or without a college degree, for someone to afford a small home or apartment, save a little for retirement or even take a vacation once or twice a decade, and maybe even have the luxury of having a kid or two.
