Joe Mulhall is Head of Research at HOPE not hate and one of the UK's leading authorities on far-right extremism. He joins SH!TPOST for a chat about his latest book, “Drums in the Distance: Journeys in the Global Far Right.” In it, Joe provides an exhaustively researched accounting of far-right political movements around the world that he tastefully pairs with vivid recounting of his time spent infiltrating and exposing those movements.
