Corey Pein shares his podcast, NEWS FROM NOWHERE, with The Baffler. Note that previous episodes can be found here and here.

Episode 10: Hashtag Resistance

Corey Pein talks to Michael Brooks about his Baffler piece, coauthored with David Slavick, on the failure of institutional centrism to provide adequate resistance to the far right. The article was “No Time for a Negative Peace.”  

Corey also speaks to “Louise Mensch,” the former British Tory MP and current prolific Twitter influencer, and Hannah Gais, Bafflerite and soon-to-be scholar of the Russian Orthodox Church.

Corey Pein writes Magical Thinking for The Baffler. He is currently based in Washington, D.C., and Portland, Oregon, and has a book coming out in April 2018 titled Live Work Work Work Die: A Journey into the Savage Heart of Silicon Valley.
