This week, I welcome Matt Alford to the show to talk about the media manipulation of the image of the British Royal Family, and how it relates to British foreign policy, including Brexit. From the killing of rare animals to closet fascism, to interfering in politics and criminal investigations, we look at numerous stories that reveal the dark underbelly of the Royals. We also discuss Matt’s new book Union Jackboot: What Your Media and Professors Don’t Tell You About British Foreign Policy, and make a few tentative predictions about Brexit.
