Interview on Orwell (Feb. 2018)

I was recently interviewed on “The Final Straw” about my book on Orwell, Between the Bullet and the Lie. Most of the interview consists of a discussion of Orwell’s criticisms of the Left, and how many of them still apply today.


Surveillance as Censorship (a month late, February 2018)


I forgot to announce this when it came out, but I wrote a short essay for the Oregon Library Association’s Intellectual Freedom Committee about the stifling effect surveillance has on thought. It draws from my work on Orwell and on my research into the prison system.
