Novara FM: Know Your Enemies w/ Matthew Sitman & Sam Adler-Bell

Listen on

Episode notes

George Bernard Shaw once joked that the US and the UK are “two countries divided by a common language.” Can the same be said of their conservatives? As we brace for a joint election year, Eleanor Penny talks to Sam Adler-Bell and Matthew Sitman, two expert guides to US conservatism via their podcast Know Your Enemy, to analyse the special relationship between right-wingers on both sides of the pond.

They discuss the differences between US and UK conservativism, the different factions that have jostled for supremacy since the 1950s, the rupture that Trump’s presidency represented, and what they expect from the upcoming elections.
