Episode 47 - Fools Rush In (w/ Marc Lamont Hill & Mitchell Plitnick)

Feb 18, 2021

Virgil & Brie take on one of the world's most cancelable subjects -- one which, ironically, is often ignored by the conservative cancel culture discourse: the Israel/Palestine conflict. Professor, author, and activist Marc Lamont Hill and his co-author ReThinking Foreign Policy's Mitchell Plitnick join us to discuss their new book Except for Palestine: The Limits of Progressive Politics and explain why positions like BDS and human rights for Palestinians remain a third rail in American politics -- even on the left.

But first, Brie and Virgil cover two recent deaths: entertainer Rush Limbaugh, and Joe Biden's political goodwill, which passed during Wednesday night's CNN town hall.
