About Deprogrammed
Every Thursday at 11:00 Pacific (or 10:00, depending on Keri's schedule), former SJW Keri Smith joins Unsafe Space to co-host "Deprogrammed."

We'll explore the philosophy, strategy, and tactics that Marxist and postmodern nihilists use to program "Social Justice Warriors," turning otherwise thoughtful, critically-minded individuals into armies of extreme leftist NPCs. Each week, we'll talk about a different aspect of "social justice" culture, drawing both from Keri's personal experience as well as current events.
