Will Be Wild

Will Be Wild

Will Be Wild is a new 8-part series about the forces that led to the January 6th insurrection and what comes next. Through in-depth stories from a wide range of characters – from people who tried to stop the attack to those who took part – hosts Andrea Bernstein and Ilya Marritz explore the ongoing effort to bring autocracy to America, the lasting damage that effort is doing to our democracy, and the fate of our attempts to combat those anti-democratic forces. Because January 6th wasn't the end of the story, January 6th was just a practice run. Follow Will Be Wild wherever you get your podcasts, or you can listen early on Amazon Music or early and ad-free by subscribing to Wondery Plus in Apple Podcasts or the Wondery app.

Many of the men and women who heeded Trump’s call to march on the Capitol on January 6th had one surprising thing in common: nearly 1 in 7 of those charged for crimes related to the insurrection had a background in the military or law-enforcement. Why did the government look away as forces of radicalization spread amongst the military and in the public at large? And how prepared is the government to face that threat as it continues...
