The governmentality Podcast
“This isn’t a guy just wingin’ it from his basement.”
— Mike Pesca, Slate’s The Gist
“All in all, a very impressive kick-off, anchored by McDuffee’s pleasing basso profound voice.”
The governmentality podcast is a weekly show about power, politics and ideas hosted by journalist Allen McDuffee. Each week, Allen takes on questions of power and the people who seek it, thrive on it, are subject to it and even those who resist it. That means covering everything from the 2016 elections to Putin’s latest power play to the newest way Google is organizing your life. Through interviews and candid looks at the news, each show is a guide to explaining how power is a part of your everyday life. Allen has talked with Brooke Gladstone of On The Media, American Enterprise Institute President Arthur Brooks and the man behind Slate’s The Gist podcast, Mike Pesca.
