It is a moment to examine the right-wing media that have fomented this scary nonsense, but also to look to reporting from the so-called “mainstream” to go beyond the “some say, others differ” pablum we often see.

Host Maria Gilardin Edward Said: Palestine and the Universality of Human Rights (archive 2003)
TUC Radio (one of our treasured sources at TJR) Available at TUC's website tucradio.org 2024
Edward Said’s last major speech on Palestine before his death in September 2003. Among the over twelve hundred programs in the TUC Radio archives, this is one of my favorites. That’s based on the respect I have for the speaker, Edward Said, and the ongoing sadness that, to this day, so little is known about the history of Palestine.

Host Bob Funke (reading and commenting) - Prologue: History and Tyranny
Host Bob Funke (reading and commenting) Prologue: History and Tyranny
Excerpt from the 2017 book: On Tyranny, by Timothy Snyder 2024
From Kirkus Reviews: “Stand out.” “Believe in truth.” "Be calm when the unthinkable arrives." A historian offers a set of 20 prescriptions for how to live under a dictatorship.
