On July 11, 1897, three brave men took off in a balloon in attempt to fly-over the North Pole. The real fate of this expedition would not be discovered for over thirty years. They were only the latest in a line of explorers who risked their lives in the brutal and unforgiving cold of the Arctic. Why did they do it? Tune in to Inquiry tonight when we talk with writer and biographer ALEC WILKINSON about his thrilling new history THE ICE BALLOON: S. A. ANDRÉE and the HEROIC AGE OF ARCTIC EXPLORATION.

Arthur Goldwag: THE NEW HATE

Wednesday, February 29, 2012 - 11:30am

For hundreds of years, there have been conspiracy theories that have suggested that a small group of powerful men in secret societies have run the governments of the world for their own benefits. Most of these conspiracy theories are grandiose, unwieldy and unfalsifiable. Many of these theories demonize other social or religious groups like Jews or Catholics. Tonight on Inquiry we talk wth writer and researcher ARTHUR GOLDWAG about his latest book THE NEW HATE: A HISTORY OF FEAR AND LOATHING ON THE POPULIST RIGHT.
