– The latest episode of the
Southern Poverty Law Center podcast, Sounds Like Hate, features exclusive,
never-before-heard recordings taken inside a neo-Nazi group known as the Base,
revealing the worldviews of these extremists as they discuss their desire for
the collapse of American society. Producers and hosts Geraldine Moriba and
Jamila Paksima have examined 83 hours of secret recordings of members of the
Base made inside the “vetting room,” where they screen potential members. Data
analysts from Stanford and Berkeley universities conducted an extensive
analysis of these recordings, which captured conversations with over 100
people, to search for clues about the Base’s motivations. The panelists will discuss “Baseless” and what
the episode’s findings tell us about the organization’s approach to
recruitment, radicalization and domestic terrorism. Tune in on Wed., Oct. 21 at 1 PM ET for the
Zoom Webinar at https://splcenter-org.zoom.us/webinar/register/1816027126998/WN_OaDJWwnZS7iLbb9HEYUkkA.
One of the panelists is Mike German, a
fellow with the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University School of

Threat Initiative; Walter Kim, president of the National Association of
