WOW! I just discovered Rachel Maddow's podcast: ULTRA. It is FANTASTIC!

As always she and her team do incredible research. I had no idea how this whole Christian maga crap is just an extension of the nazi influence into American politics from 1940ís. Itís a little more than a half hr but oh so worth the listen.

9. Same! I'm only 3 episodes in and it is outstanding!

Will go listen to it again too bc I am not an audio learner and feel I missed a few things.

10. Yes! And the antisemitic nonsense they're pushing.

When she described what they wanted to do to jews in LA absolutely horrified me. Made me think of all the antisemitic stuff of late.

5. Is there anyway to read this instead of watching?

Content sounds very interesting, but I'd like to "digest" it in written form if possible. Thx.

6. I agree. It is thought the parallels to today were somehow "created."

But sadly, they are not.

11. At the risk of exposing myself as computer ignorant, how do I access a podcast,

specifically, Rachel's podcast? When I go to the site you provided, I hit the play button, but
there's no picture, just the clock ticking away.

15. You need a podcast app

What device do you have?
Apple devices have a built in app simply called Podcasts
For Android phones you can look for Google Podcasts in the Google Play Store. You can also listen to podcasts at the website: https://podcasts.google.com/
then search for Ultra and you can listen to the episodes.
The website for Ultra is
https://www.msnbc.com/rachel-maddow-presents-ultra
Below the title you'll see links to other podcast apps like Spotify, TuneIn or iHeart.

Ultra is great. It scares the crap out of me.

If you're new to podcasts, you're in for a treat. I recommend RadioLab, The Moth, Snap Judgement, New Yorker Radio Hour, CounterSpin, there are a ton to choose from. Have fun!

22. Agree!

Found on Monday and binge listened to all back to back. Can't wait for the next one, and very sad that it's the last in this series.
