#1: Tom Talks... Right-Wing Populism in the United States, with Jeremy Roberts



In this episode, I talk with Jeremy Roberts about right-wing populism in the United States. Our conversation ranges from: pinning down a definition of populism; the significance of voter perception of the political landscape independent of statistics; and understanding Donald Trump's success.   Jeremy Roberts is a PhD Candidate in the Political Science Department at Western University, where he researches the rise of populism in the United States. He holds a bachelors degree in Political Science from Western University, and a masters degree from Oxford University.   Let me give a quick note on the podcast's audio. Jeremy and myself recorded our conversation over FaceTime audio. While I have tried to remove most of the sound problems associated with recording a phone call, some issues still inevitably remain. I apologize for these, and hope to improve my sound editing skills in the coming episodes. Thank you to the listener for your patience in this regard.   ---   If you enjoyed this content, subscribe on iTu
