Episode 27: On Tyranny by Timothy Snyder

Episode 27: On Tyranny by Timothy Snyder

In Episode 27 of the Drunk Guys Book Club Podcast, we discuss the one-year mark of the Trump Administration through the lens of On Tyranny by Timothy Snyder.  Was Snyder right?  Or, was the whole book an overreaction to the election?  Are we just tempting Godwin’s Law?  We don’t come to many conclusions, probably because of all the beer we drank such as Ritterguts Gose, Delirium Nocturnum, Citizen Cider, Dosvidanya, and Molotov Heavy.
