The Good Liberal
Good evening, listeners. We have a special episode for you this week, as host Richard Aldous speaks with Yascha Mounk about his new book The People vs. Democracy: Why Our Freedom Is in Danger and How to Save It.
Yascha Mounk is a lecturer on government at Harvard University and a senior fellow in the Political Reform Program at New America. His new book was published by Harvard University Press this week, and he appears on the program to discuss the myriad challenges the rise of populism is posing for democracy.
Then, Shadi Hamid, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution and author of Islamic Exceptionalism, comes on the show to discuss his recent review of Mounk’s book.
