#1 | Villain or Messiah? The Rise of Jordan Peterson: Patricia Marcoccia & Maziar Ghaderi

By now, chances are pretty good that you’ve heard the name Jordan Peterson, and already have a strong opinion about him.  Back in 2016, he was the controversial Canadian academic who refused to agree to the mandated use of gender pronouns at the University of Toronto.
This resulted in a massive debate on whether he was taking a stand for free speech, or simply a bigot who refused to bow to the progressive future.  Since then, his popularity has exploded. With the release of his new book “12 Rules for Life” he has become a Youtube star and been called the most influential public intellectual in the Western World right now.
On today’s show, my guests are Patricia Marcoccia and Maziar Ghaderi, co-directors of the new documentary titled The Rise of Jordan Peterson.  The film has just finished a North American theatrical tour, and is now available widely online.
In this interview, we discuss the journey of making the film, the reasons why he is misunderstood by the political Left as well as the Right, and the mythic lens by which to understand his crusade in this cultural moment.
