Sick of hearing about President Trump? Us too…so here is some more Trump coverage! We discuss the election result and the importance of the Left moving beyond ‘progressivism of the rich’.

To analyse the election and the fall-out, we draw on Naomi Klein, Thomas Frank, Bernie Sanders and Russell Brand.

There’s a discussion of left-wing critiques of identity politics and an anarchist defence of identity politics – thanks to Rebecca from Anarchist Affinity. For more on identity politics, check out our 117th episode.

There’s also a breakdown of who voted for which party based on race, income etc.

Nick is back with one final episode on the US election, featuring some listener feedback on our last two episodes (#146 and #147) on this topic. Jeremy Mendelson @CriticalTransit makes the case for why he is not voting for Clinton and the importance of voting for third parties like the Greens.

There is also some discussion on Trump, class and the urban/rural divide in the US. For more on this, check out Cracked podcast, Jimmy Dore and Chomsky on the impact of NAFTA (Trump opposes this free trade agreement).

This episode features politics professor Jason Brownlee on the US election. This is a continuation of our discussion with Jason from episode 146. This time we discuss: will Clinton’s policies move to the left as a result of the popularity of Sanders? Or is she just pandering (or Sandering :p)? Clinton versus Trump on abortion rights; gender bias against Clinton; the importance of alternative ideas from minor parties; third party candidates and dividing the progressive vote; problems with the US electoral system; and anarchism and voting.

We also discuss the fallout from the (likely) Trump loss and this episode of BBC radio, where you can hear Trump supporters make some bizarre claims.
