Why so angry? Shadi and Damir talk about useful idiocy,
neoconservatism, and the dangerous temptation of righteousness in
politics. Come for Shadi musing about U2 and stay for Damir
rhapsodizing about Guy Debord.
We’re Damir Marusic and Shadi Hamid. We live in Washington DC and have been friends for a while. One of us works at a magazine, another thinks in a tank. The idea behind the podcast is to try out ideas in the hope of getting considered push-back—in real-time. We talk politics, ideas, culture, and current events. Civil discussion, maybe even a bit odd. But hopefully fun.
