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.

We are again joined by politics professor Jason Brownlee. This is a continuation of our discussion with Jason from last episode (#142), where he introduced Peter Singer’s work on effective altruism and discussed some of the positive aspects. On this episode Jason discusses some critiques of Singer’s effective altruism, focusing mainly on a failure to address the structural causes of poverty, such as capitalism and neoliberal institutions like the International Monetary Fund.
