John Adams on Myth, Culture and Politics

Published on Jun 21, 2017
John Adams returns to Our Interesting Times to discuss his research regarding historical myths and culture creation. We discuss two books: Michael Kammen's Mystic Chords of Memory and Jules Henry's Culture Against Men. We talk about how the oligarchs create and exploit historical myths to perpetuate their rule and the roles propaganda, advertising, mass trauma and technology have played in creating mass culture.

John is a researcher and co-host of The Afternoon Commute, a podcast regularly featured on Hoax Busters Call.
