In this episode of The Spectacle Podcast, Melissa Mackenzie (publisher of The American Spectator), and Scott McKay (American Spectator contributing editor and publisher of RVIVR.com and The Hayride) have on a special guest: American Spectator editor Paul Kengor.
For a very good reason: Paul is an expert of sorts on the topic of evil, and its manifestations in politics and culture.
The discussion ranges widely through current events and history around a central topic: is evil proliferating in society? Whether it’s the chaos in the streets, the inexplicable weirdness of our politics, the “Do What Thou Wilt” disorder emanating from our cultural institutions or just the general malaise people feel, you’ve likely had a conversation with someone lately about the nature of evil afoot in society.
It’s an important discussion, and one we’re proud of. We hope you will be, too! If so, please feel free to like, share and subscribe.
