Sometimes, the temptation to take a symbol, or even a term of disparagement, and turn it against one’s opponents, particularly when those opponents specialize in smug condescension, is difficult to resist. So Dave Carter didn’t bother trying. Resistance takes too much energy anyway, and he’d rather use that energy having fun and chatting with his fellow deplorables. The idea of Radio Deplorable is to shine a spotlight on the people and places that those in the NYC-DC-LA vortex neither understand nor like very much.
Whether it is a chat with an author or commentator, a mechanic, a pastor, an interesting stranger at a truck stop, or just random thoughts from the host, the animating perspectives of this podcast will emanate from the folks that the condescending class claims to look out for, but who rarely miss an opportunity to sneer at and belittle. Years ago, Bill Buckley said that he would rather be governed by the first 2,000 names in the Boston phone directory than by the entire faculty of Harvard. At Radio Deplorable, we will, in a sense, go treasure hunting in the phone book.
