Podcast cover: What A Day

What A Day

Each morning, comedian Akilah Hughes and reporter Gideon Resnick break down the day’s big stories, in such a way that this podcast good-naturedly touts itself as “what Fox & Friends would sound like, if it were hosted by two people whose parents read to them as children.”

We’ve been hearing that the far-right is on the rise in Europe for a decade now. And yet, with a few exceptions, these parties are nowhere near taking power. Even in the EU Parliament, where the far-right made gains for the third election in a row this week, nationalist parties are STILL expected to end up marginalized and powerless. What's driving them and what's stopping them? Max and guest host Josie Duffy Rice take a look at the rise of the German far-right AfD party to illustrate what’s going on across the continent and how we got here.
