Nueva Germania and Other Failed Utopias feat Karl Mamer

Episode 29: Hurricane DeSantis

We’re back this week with the second part of our Florida coverage.
We’re continuing the story of Ron DeSantis’ war on woke. Last time, Ron, with only his motley crew of legislators and angry moms, took on books, teacher’s unions, and Mickey Mouse.

In this thrilling conclusion, we’ll find out how Florida became the battle-ground for the Republican Party’s culture wars and Ron DeSantis’ swamp boat propelling him to the White House.

First, there’s been a new development in the fight between DeSantis and Disney. We last left off talking about the not-really-that-woke Disney losing their special, half-century-long governmental status. Apparently, the Corporate Kingdom had another trick up their sleeve.
