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.
