TA-NEHISI COATES ON TONY JUDT

In the first episode of Primary Sources, a new podcast from Type and Public Books, Ta-Nehisi Coates talks about how Tony Judt, a British historian, influenced his work, and why Postwar had such a profound impact on him. He also talks about the power of language to help us imagine a better world, whether he identifies as an Afro-pessimist, and what it’s like to grow up in a nationalist household.
