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.
