Pankaj Mishra’s book “The Age Of Anger: A History of the Present” is the antidote to the defenders of the enlightenment, like Jordan Peterson and Steven Pinker, who are suddenly so big now. It examines the gap between what modernity and development promised and what it actually delivered and explores how that is tied to our extreme age. Jessa invites Pankaj onto the show to discuss his work, the larger issue of masculinity in crisis, and of course, Peterson challenging Pankaj to a duel via Twitter.
