Chris Rufo joins the podcast to talk about his new book, America's Cultural Revolution: How the Radical Left Conquered Everything.

Rufo begins by talking about his background and his theory of political change. The conversation then shifts to his new book, the strengths of Ron DeSantis as an administrator, and finally what he’s doing on the board of the New College of Florida. Topics include:

  • Where did all of the crazy ideas that seem to have taken over institutions in the last few years come from?

  • What took conservatives so long to wake up to the problem?

  • Did Rufo end up liking the intellectuals he was studying?

  • What are the connections between left-wing ideas and civil rights law?

  • How do conservatives reach “good liberals” within institutions?

See the transcript of the conversation at the Richard Hanania Newsletter.
