In Episode 34 of our Nooze Hounds podcast, we talk to Jordan Green, senior editor at Triad City Beat in Greensboro, and freelance reporter for various national publications. Green has spent much of the last four years reporting on fringe, far-right extremist groups in North Carolina and how they play into the national movement, which is made up of anti-government groups, white supremacists and conspiracy theorists. We discuss those themes, the role of social media in right-wing extremism, the upcoming inauguration and more in our conversation below.
In his latest Triad City Beat cover story, Green identifies multiple North Carolinians who played a part in storming the Capitol building in Washington D.C. on Jan. 6. In the feature photo, taken by freelance photographer Raven Geary, pro-Trump rioters work toward the Capitol during the Jan. 6 insurrection.
