Sonny Bunch’s Saturday pod has joined The Ankler. He’s a contributing columnist at the Washington Post, The Bulwark culture editor, and member of the Washington Area Film Critics Association.

This week I’m joined by Ken Harbaugh, the producer of Against All Enemies, to discuss his new documentary about the high numbers of military and police personnel attracted to extremist groups like the Oath Keepers. How did so many end up at the vanguard of the mob on January 6th? And what role do lies about elections play in radicalizing this cohort? We also discuss the film’s glowing reception at Tribeca and the work that goes into getting a documentary like this not only produced but also distributed. If you enjoyed the episode, make sure to share it with a friend!
