Tocqueville 21 Podcast: Political Satire with Alexander Kliment
We’re happy to present the ninth episode of the Tocqueville 21 podcast!
Today, we begin a new series of episodes exploring political satire: its role in the modern world, its origins, and how it will evolve in an increasingly digital environment.
Joining us for this discussion is Alexander Kliment, director and creator of the Puppet Regime, an award winning satirical show that highlights the evolving landscape of geopolitics through puppetry and impersonations of world leaders. In addition to writing and directing Puppet Regime, Alex Kliment is also Creative Director at GZERO Media and a Senior Editor of Signal. Formerly an analyst with GZERO Media’s parent company Eurasia Group, Alex has also worked as a journalist for the Financial Times.
Our discussion covers the complex landscape of modern politics, and seeks to underline what makes a show that combines politics, puppets and current affairs so funny to so many people. We hope you enjoy it!
