Episode details

Dear All, It’s been one of the great pleasures of my life as a writer to speak about the new graphic edition of On Tyranny with its illustrator, Nora Krug. Her interpretation of the book is astounding and beautiful, and in our public conversations I have much enjoyed making contact with her and with our new public. There has also been a good deal of discussion of the book on television. I am now getting back to these podcasts, and will get them all out to you by Christmas (not by Hanukkah, which is coming very early this year!).

This lesson and this podcast is about paramilitaries. As we approach the anniversary of our coup attempt, with investigation slow and coup plotters defiant, it is, I fear, more timely than ever.
