This is not really an interview with me – instead I am one of the interviewers. Nevertheless I had quite a bit to say about the Alt Left, since it is one of my pet notions. I have been meaning to write about Rabbit and his AltLeft site for some time now, but I never got a Round Tuit.
This is probably one of the coolest interviews I have ever done. I would really like to see this Alt Left thing take off in a similar way that the Alt Right took off. I would be so cool if we could have an Alt Left blogosphere. Hope you enjoy it and looking forward to your comments on the Alt Left in the comments section.
