McCarthyism & The Red Scare

We’ve seen it before. Can it happen again? Is it already happening?

In this episode, we explore McCarthyism and the Red Scare of the early 20th century in the United States. Mike takes us through the history, from where it starts shortly after the fall of Russia in the 19-teens to the death of McCarthy, the potentially undeserving namesake for the phenomenon and then we wrap up the show with a bit of discussion about the situation, where it came from and why, and evaluate McCarthy’s actions from that perspective.
