This week, Will is again joined by self-described anacrcho-communist Zach to discuss the latest in American political happenings.
Will and Zach begin by examining the current situation in Venezuela. Zach is clear to discuss how the United States has negatively impacted Central and South America historically through coups and interference. He worries that we are doing the same again, in a nation with relatively high standards of living and development. Will, on the other hand, believe the National Assembly democratically created a power vacuum, and the United States is helping to ensire the people’s voices are heard.
Next, Will and Zach discuss the 2020 nominees. While Zach supports Bernie Sanders, he does wish that someone younger was carrying the mantle for progressive causes. He also finds himself aligned with Elizabeth Warren but does not believe her chances of victory are strong. Will says he likes Cory Booker out of the group, but that it’s likely none of the current candidates can survive the long process. Will and Zach both agree Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina are not where these decisions should be starting, however.
The show closes with Will posing listener questions to Zach about his self-proclaimed ideology.
