Podcast #111: Avoid conservative safe spaces on campus

This week in VICE, Will Nardi delivered a critique of right wing campus organizations that are setting the movement back. There’s no doubt that life on campus can be tough for right of center students, but Nardi writes that students “hyped up by anti-left rhetoric and tantalized by whispers of job prospects in the conservative movement, then go back to campus forgetting that the real world isn’t a never-ending Trump rally.”

Will joins the podcast today to discuss the piece and his thinking about what is needed on campus to make the conservative movement strong and principled.
