In a sneak peek at season two’s “Baseless” episodes, we hear portions of a harrowing conversation with the father of a white supremacist leader who operated The Base’s training compound in Bad Axe, Michigan. Podcast hosts Geraldine Moriba and Jamila Paksima are guided by the father of the compound leader as they tour what remains of the headquarters after an FBI raid. Poring over the remains of the group’s preparations for a race war and the fall of society as we know it, they discuss youth radicalization and white supremacy.

About this Series

Sounds Like Hate is a podcast from the Southern Poverty Law Center that tells the stories of people and communities grappling with hate and searching for solutions. You will meet people who have been personally touched by hate, hear their voices and be immersed in the sounds of their world. And, you will learn about the power of people to change – or to succumb to their worst instincts.

Season one takes a deep dive into the realities of hate in modern America: how it functions, how it spreads, who is affected and what people are doing about it. Season two examines the distorted history of the Confederacy some people accept as truth, and how the people we love the most could be guided toward violent extremist beliefs.
