  • What an incredibly powerful podcast. I learned so much about the state and causes of authoritarianism around the world. I appreciate your introducing us to journalist Rula Jubreal and her work to expose the threats, dangers, and the tragic consequences of authoritarianism, and authoritarianism's basis in racism.
