Radio Free Covenant: Episode 2 – Fascism and Noodles

Episode 2: Fascism and Noodles

So, we’re trying a shorter format that we hope we can get out on a more regular basis. I hope you bear with us through our birthing pangs. For now, join Sean and Sazzy as they talk about:

  • Why fascism and autocracy may be the inevitable outcome of our current politics and economics
  • Why it’s still important to portray fascism and autocracy correctly in fiction
  • How some works of art satirize fascists and autocrats or use them as the baddies, but still inadvertently make them look desirable
  • Ways Sean and Sazzy can make the democratic Covenant look more desirable, superficially and substantively, to its fascist rivals

The articles we talked about in this episode were:
