The problem is Kasparov is speaking out of both sides of his mouth. He blames Democrats for putting forward unattractive candidate who are unattractive because they are centrist, yet he dismisses the "far left" as polarising and conflates them with the far right. He wants change, but only if everything remains the same. He wants to solve the problem with the same world view that created it - a true reactionary. He brings nothing new to the discourse that you won't hear from any establishment Democrat.

I like the idea of hearing a champion game player's ideas about current events in the Big Game of American politics. somehow this conversation didn't deliver the promise of the notion and I am not sure why. Kasparov speaks in large-brush pronouncements but when pressed to provide specific details, he doesn't offer much.

Alex Mercedes This is a classic case of doublethink. The political centre is unattractive, but the far left (a.k.a democratic socialist) can't win elections because they are divisive. We must not talk about policies (or proactive strategies for that matter). We just have to defeat Trumpism. This is why when pressed, he must retreat back into banal generalities. He is being intellectually dishonest... and he knows it.

OMG I love this podcast but I cringe every time this presenter pronounces the word American as "Ömarican" - I wish someone would take him aside and sit down with him for 5 or 10 minutes just having him repeat correctly: "American. American. American." No excuse for his continued butchering of this relatively simple speech act.
