Damien G. Walter is a writer, storyteller, teacher, and journalist.
Fascism is a common theme in fantasy worlds, especially the rebels vs. evil empire scenario. But what can we learn from stories about encroaching fascism? I talk with journalists Lauren Davis, Damien G. Walter, professor Jason Dittmer and podcaster Stefan Sasse – who teaches history in Germany – about Star Wars, Game of Thrones, superheroes and how fantasy itself can be a dangerous tool for authoritarians.  Stefan also hosts The Boiled Leather Audio Hour podcast.Today's episode is brought to you by BetterHelp.
