Talking Character Assassination and Political Campaigns with Jason Jay Smart
Play • 54 min

In this throwback episode from the 2020 presidential campaign, Dr. Eric Shiraev interviews Jason Jay Smart, an international political strategist and campaign manager who has worked in Ukraine, Moldova, and Kyrgyzstan. Smart is also a graduate of George Mason University. Here, Eric and Jason discuss the reasons why some character attacks work and others don't (hint- it's all about culture), the real difference between the United States and Kyrgyzstan, and why dictators should tolerate a little protest.
