The Flamethrowers

A weekly Spotify exclusive podcast featuring Justin Ling
 5 people rated this podcast
“The Flamethrowers” captures the punch-you-in-the-mouth energy and sound of right-wing talk radio. Host Justin Ling takes us from the fringe preachers and conspiracy peddlers of the 1920s to the political firestorm that rages today. With humour and candour, Ling examines the appeal of broadcasters like Rush Limbaugh, who found a sleeping audience, radicalized it, and became an accidental kingmaker — culminating in the election of Donald Trump.

This was an excellent 6-part history of talk radio, from its beginnings in the 1930s to the election of President Trump. Recommended.
