On this week’s episode of Yeah Nah, we talk to Talia Lavin [Twitter]: writer, podcaster and author of Culture Warlords: My Journey Into the Dark Web of White Supremacy (Hachette, 2020):
Talia Lavin is every fascist’s worst nightmare: a loud and unapologetic young Jewish woman, with the online investigative know-how to expose the tactics and ideologies of online hatemongers. Outspoken and uncompromising, Lavin’s debut uncovers the hidden corners of the web where extremists hang out, from white nationalists and incels to national socialists and Proud Boys.
