Episode details

The realignment of left and right is something that we talk about a lot on this podcast, as we try to make sense of the current moment. This political shakeup is producing new politics, new alliances, and new conversations.   

To keep up with the pace of such shifts, Lean Out is now expanding to two episodes a week, to better document these developments in real time. I’ll still be interviewing an author every week, but now I will also be interviewing a journalist — about a newly-published piece that’s making waves in the culture.

This week we ask: What happens when a man of the right hits a leftist labour conference?

We’ll be discussing a provocative new piece, “What the Right Doesn’t Get About the Labor Left.”

Sohrab Ahmari is a founder and editor of Compact Magazine, a new radical American journal. He’s a prominent conservative commentator and the author of several non-fiction books, including The Unbroken Thread: Discovering the Wisdom of Tradition in an Age of Chaos. Sohrab Ahmari is my guest, to kick off this new series.
