November 18, 2021

Roger Lancaster, author of the book Sex Panic, joins the Jacobin Show to discuss the McMartin daycare trial, the Satanic ritual abuse panic of the 1980s, and the role of the mainstream media in fomenting moral panics across the US.

The Jacobin Show offers socialist perspectives on class and capitalism in the twenty-first century, the failures of liberalism, and the prospects of rebuilding a left labor movement in the US. This is the podcast version of the show from November 15, 2021 with Jen Pan and Paul Prescod hosting.
