History

Red Scare began on March 29th, 2018, with an episode titled “Infowhores.” The podcast’s Patreon began on the same date and currently has over 13,000 patrons, raking in over $56,000 a month.

The podcast gained notoriety following a 2020 profile in The Cut that described Red Scare as “a critique of feminism, and capitalism, from deep inside the culture they’ve spawned,” a line which the podcast itself uses on the homepage of its website.

The show is frequently associated with New York City’s reactionary downtown arts scene and grouped together with or compared with other irreverent and controversial leftist podcasts like Cum Town and Chapo Trap House. The show’s listeners and overall vibe has a notorious reputation, as depicted in the meme seen below, posted to Reddit on November 1st, 2020, receiving over 120 likes in roughly one and a half years.
