Left Populism in Spain and the USA with Jorge Tamames The Sobremesa Podcast

In this episode of the Sobremesa podcast, I chat with journalist and political researcher Jorge Tamames about the history and current state of populism in the USA and Spain. Jorge's book 'For The People: Left Populism in Spain and the US' concentrates on left wing populism. Here he explains the conditions that led to the rise in Podemos and Bernie Sanders, and their differences. Later we discuss Podemos inside the government, republicanism, right wing populism and what covid-19 might mean for populism in the future.
