Episode 14 – How to become a dictator: interview with Ece Temelkuran

Ece Temelkuran is a Turkish novelist and political commentator. We discuss her non-fiction book How To Lose a Country: The 7 Steps from Democracy to Dictatorship.

She describes how the Erdogan government started by undermining concepts of truth, logic or even any sense of shame, before going on to attack judicial and political institutions. What she says may alarm you about the current direction of the UK and US.
