About this Episode

Philip spends time with Umut Ozkirimli, author of the recent book Cancelled: The Left Way Back From Woke. In their conversation, they discuss Umut’s primary thesis regarding “woke” and “cancelled” as operating principles on the left. In turn they navigate through competing perspectives on the meaning and relevance of so-called cancel culture and being woke.
