Best Of: 'Watchmen' Writer / Stephen Miller & The White Nationalist Agenda

Saturday, 29 August

Kevin Whitehead shares an appreciation of jazz great Charlie Parker for the 100th anniversary of his birth.

"It's impossible to understand the Trump era, with its unparalleled polarization, without tracing Stephen Miller's journey to the White House," journalist Jean Guerrero writes in her new book 'Hatemonger.' She describes the ideological arc of Miller's life and investigates his ties to right-wing mentors and far-right groups.
