Gaslit Nation


Jun 22, 2024

Reminder! Join us Tuesday for the live taping of Gaslit Nation at 12pm ET with investigative journalist Craig Unger, author of the bestselling books House of Trump, House of Putin: The Untold Story of Donald Trump and the Russian Mafia and American Kompromat: How the KGB Cultivated Donald Trump, and Related Tales of Sex, Greed, Power, and Treachery. A Zoom link will go out the morning of the event to our subscribers at the Truth-teller level and higher! To our supporters at the Democracy Defender level and higher, message us your questions for our interview with Craig Unger! 

In this week’s Gaslit Nation bonus show, Terrell Starr of the essential Black Diplomats Podcast & Substack joins Andrea to discuss the Caitlin Clark phenomenon, as well as the racism and misogyny targeting this golden age of women’s basketball. This isn't just about sports; it's a seismic shift in the way we discuss gender and race. We need better conversations—more nuanced, more empathetic—about these topics, and we need to recognize the lived experiences of those involved. The dialogue around women’s sports is riddled with misogyny and cultural clashes, and it’s high time we confront and dismantle these toxic narratives. So, let’s give Caitlin Clark, Angel Reese, Paige Bueckers, Cameron Brink, and their peers the respect they deserve, and in doing so, make strides toward a more equitable future in sports.

Thank you to everyone who supports the show – we could not make Gaslit Nation without you!

Cult Expert Dr. Janja Lalich Live-Taping - July 15 8pm ET

  • July 15th kicks off the Republican National Convention/Hitler rally in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. To help us cope with the mainstream media, especially the New York Times, continuing to normalize Trump and his MAGA cult, we’re producing a live taping with cult expert Dr. Janja Lalich. Bring your questions about how to navitage this perilous time of rampant disinformation and manipulation, learn the signs of cult grooming, and how to help loved ones who have fallen victim. This will be Dr. Lalich’s second time on the show. You can listen to the interview with her from April 2022 here

 

In the Shadow of Stalin Book Launch - September 

  • Gaslit Nation will host a live taping at a book launch in New York City for In the Shadow of Stalin, the graphic novel adaptation of Mr. Jones. It includes scenes that didn’t make it into the final cut of the film, or it would have been three hours long! The evening will include a special meet-up just for Patreon supporters. We look forward to sharing more details as we get closer. If you want a book event/live taping of Gaslit Nation in your town or city, let us know! 

 

Indivisible x Gaslit Nation Phonebank Party! - June 20th 7pm ET

Come join us for our first phone bank party of the season, as we make calls to our fellow citizens in Republican hostage states, to refuse to abandon those on the frontlines of American authoritarianism, and to plant seeds of change.
