Description

In this episode, we discuss the link between our generation’s prolonged adolescence and “soft tyranny,” with a little help from French political philosopher Alexis de Tocqueville.

And does this upside down cultural moment help explain the popularity of anti-heroes, from Tony Soprano to Walter White?
