Yesterday’s Man: The Case Against Joe Biden (Branko Marcetic) (E936)

On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to the author of ‘Yesterday’s Man: The Case Against Joe Biden’ and staff writer at Jacobin Magazine, Branko Marcetic. He discusses the contents of his new book, which explores the lesser-known parts of Joe Biden’s political career in great detail, including his friendship with racist senators, resistance against racial integration measures, a neoliberal record on economic policy, his relations with the powerful DuPont family in Delaware, his foreign policy record, conservative ‘law and order’ stances, and much more. Marcetic concludes that, despite Biden’s perceived negative aspects, he makes a better choice than Donald Trump. Finally, Going Underground’s deputy editor Charlie Cooke speaks to award-winning photographer Jeff Mermelstein, author of ‘#NYC.’ He discusses the background of the photography project, contentions he had regarding privacy ethics surrounding ‘#NYC,’ the changing dynamics of privacy today and how we are observed and monitored more than ever, and why he chose New York over any other city in the world for the focus of the project!
