My guest today is Eva Önnudóttir. Eva is a Professor of Political Science at the University of Iceland in Reykjavik, the country’s capitol. Her main work is in the fields of electoral studies and public opinion in Iceland and beyond and she has published several pieces about the so-called “pots and pans protests” in the wake of the economic crisis of 2008-9, which hit Iceland early and hard. We talk about the effect of the Great Recession, Jon Gnarr and the Best Party, and the absence of radic al politics in Iceland.
