The Terror Attack No One Noticed
Matthew King

Good evening, listeners! We have another great episode for you this week as host Richard Aldous discusses resurgent populism with Nils Gilman before speaking with Matthew King about a terror attack the media missed in Africa.

First, Nils Gilman, associate chancellor at the University of California, Berkeley, joins the show to discuss the economic and cultural realities helping to drive resurgent populist resentment in American politics today.

Then, Duke University student and former TAI intern Matthew King speaks about the massacre in the Democratic Republic of the Congo ten days ago, explaining why the event wasn’t covered in American media, and why Western commentators would do well to pay more attention to the goings on in Africa today.

Be sure to subscribe to the podcast on iTunes where you can also leave a review, and follow Nils Gilman @nils_gilman, Matthew King @longlivethematt, and Richard Aldous @RJAldous on Twitter.
