More Episodes

There are two guests on this episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show.

Dr. Aruna Khilanani is a forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst with expertise in violence and racism.

Dr. Khilanani shares what it was like to be attacked by the right-wing rage machine because of her recent talk at the Yale University School of Medicine titled “The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind”.

To that end, she explains her argument about the relationship between Whiteness, society, and mental health -- and why her truth-telling was met with such rage and accompanying threats of violence.

Dr. Khilanani also reflects on what the established research reveals about the relationships between race, power, emotions, and mental health. And she applies her training in psychoanalysis to explain the so-called “Karen” phenomenon and how other white women often claim undeserved victimhood and a lack of accountability for their harmful behavior through egomania, narcissism, and other forms of denial and deflection.

Zachary Petrizzo is a news staff writer at Salon.

Last weekend, he journeyed to CPAC 2021 in Dallas and shares what it was like at that monster’s ball of fascism, violence, Trump cultism, conspiracism, lies, delusions, and other anti-social behavior. Zachary also warns that CPAC is now a harbinger and bellwether for an increasingly deranged Trump movement whose ultimate goal is to overthrow America’s multiracial secular democracy.

Chauncey DeVega shares how American democracy is rapidly succumbing to the Jim Crow Republicans, the neofascists, and the larger white right’s assaults -- and how it feels like being on a speeding transit bus with no brakes.

And Chauncey shares how women’s bodily autonomy and reproductive rights and freedoms are a key battlefront in the war to defend American democracy.
