“The first time I ever really listened to Kyle Kulinski’s show was in the back of a cab last summer. The driver had his phone hooked up through the stereo and was pumping out an episode through the car speakers — loudly, as if looking to convert a captive audience.

“Do you like Kyle Kulinski?”

The driver, Ahmed, was a recent immigrant and apparently a die-hard fan of Secular Talk, the political talk show that Kulinski broadcasts on YouTube. I told him, yes, in fact. I do like Kulinski, had come across his show several years ago, and, all things considered, he seemed pretty good.

“He understands what we’re up against,” Ahmed said. “Like Bernie.”

But I was surprised to hear Kulinski’s name mentioned in the same breath as Bernie Sanders, particularly with such adoration. Because what I did remember about Kulinski’s show struck me as mostly capital-P “progressive” takes on the news — the left wing of the Netroots crowd more than the democratic socialism Sanders has popularized.

It’s an impression that wasn’t entirely incorrect.

“I have no time for philosophical, airy bullshit,” Kulinski tells me from his home in Westchester, New York. “I don’t want to hear about Lenin. I don’t want to hear about Marx. I just want a super plainspoken, straightforward agenda with a straightforward way of selling it.”

With over 800,000 subscribers and nearly 670 million total views on YouTube, selling a progressive agenda is clearly something Kulinski knows how to do — even Democracy Now, the long-standing flagship of progressive media, cannot match his reach on the platform. Chapo Trap House can certainly boast a wildly devoted fan base (and a not insignificant degree of media influence), but their audience is roughly half the size of Kulinski’s.

While Secular Talk might be more likely to be looped in with the progressive networks around Air America and Pacifica alums like Sam Seder than the more resolutely socialist world, Kulinski’s fiery rhetoric, razor-sharp class instincts, and knack for withering takedowns sets him apart from his peers. Judging by his rhetoric alone, he’s closer to a Eugene Debs than a Chris Hayes.

But unlike Hayes, Amy Goodman, or his friend Cenk Uygur of The Young Turks — who began airing Secular Talk on his web network seven years ago — the thirty-two-year-old Kulinski is virtually invisible in the mainstream media. Despite his enormous fan base, his show has never once been mentioned in the obligatory trend pieces on “the Millennial Left” pumped out by the prestige media. Nor has Kulinski’s name ever popped up at all in the New York Times, Vox, the New Yorker, New York Magazine, or the Washington Post, despite his leading role in cofounding Justice Democrats, the organization widely credited with sweeping Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the rest of “the Squad” to power.

Just last week, his Wikipedia page was deleted. The reason? “There is very simply no [reliable source] coverage of this person,” according to one moderator. In new media, he’s king — the Sean Hannity of the Berniecrat left. In old media, he’s nobody.

I suspect there are a few reasons for that. There is nothing “cool” about Kulinski’s show. (As a friend put it, “‘Welcome to Secular Talk’ sounds like something you’d hear on Egyptian radio.”) His no-nonsense social-democratic politics won’t get him much cred with the Full Communism crowd. He records his show not in Brooklyn or Los Angeles, but in a studio he built himself in his modest Westchester home. His hair is too groomed and his taste in clothes too preppy to qualify as “Dirtbag Left.” Nor has he ever attended an n+1 release party. “Not only have I not attended one,” he says, “I have no idea what that means.”

And yet he’s astonishingly plugged-in for a young man in the suburbs. Wondering how Sanders ended up on the Joe Rogan Experience? Kulinski, a frequent guest on Rogan’s wildly popular show, introduced them. “You make the most sense to me,” Rogan told Kulinski on a recent episode. “You’re a normal person.”

Much like Sanders himself, Kulinski’s show has a massive audience that just doesn’t compute with our media’s understanding of “what the kids want” or even “what the left-wing kids want.”

It’s probably for the best — the very woke and very WASP-ish decorum haunting much of the media world is nowhere to be found in Secular Talk. “Corporate Democrats over-focus on identity as a trick to divert you from the issues that unite us all — class issues,” he said on a recent episode. “That Raytheon decided they don’t hate gays or trans people — frankly, I don’t really give a shit what their take on that is…”

  1. The whataboutisms are coming fast and FURIOUS from Kyle. No one even needs to look at the US position in this issue Kyle, they can evaluate it for themselves. The US does not need standing to call something like this out, because every other country in the world is doing the same thing, on the basis of what is being done, not the moral preening from the US. Another stupid ass video.

  2. The genocide in Yemen is being conducted with mostly US munitions delivered from mostly UK aircraft. Ain't NATO compatibility great, eh? When the Al Yamamah contract was extended again for the supply of those aircraft (plus replacements, spares, etc.) Gordon Brown hailed it as "British jobs for British workers". The deal was actually signed off the way the Saudi family business masquerading as a state likes it best, prince-to-prince. Competitive advantage there, see, the rival suppliers, USA and France, can't field a prince between 'em. The prince in question was described at the time as a "British Trade Envoy". Can anyone guess which prince it was? Come on, there's not that many to choose from. More recently, he has been described as "the defendant". It cost an unspecified few million quid of who knows whose money for him to wriggle out of that one. That's right, it was Epstein's mate, Prince Armsdealer..

  3. You’re wrong Kyle, the average citizens of these countries must suffer or the agendas of their governments will never change. If the rest of the world makes life miserable for everyone who lives within these monstrous regimes, they will begin to demand change from their government. Only then will we see their agendas change.

  4. Biden is using the Trump policy to hide his drone strikes, otherwise why keep the policy unless you are using it Kyle??? I mean wouldnt you want it documented that you arent using drone strikes by reinstating these previous policies if you were really on the up and up??? Come on man! WAKE UP

  5. Kyle stop russiagating your YT alg. With repeating mainstream propaganda. Condemning war and violation of international law is one thing. Adding and inventing talking points is disinformation.

  6. Kyle, you realized and admitted it all beginning at time: 9:09. You should process that. Reality and history aren't rhetorical, moral, or logical arguments. They are real ongoing physical and spiritual phenomenon, and devil take the hindmost. It is ugly. Which side are you on? I'm on the US/Israeli side, and F the rest of them. Hypocrisy be damned. Hard-power trumps pearl-clutching cries of hypocrisy every time.

  7. "As long as this guy says putin is evil and Russia are the bad guys, let's here what this guy has to say". Kyle used to be so much less establishment centrist, as did his friends at TYT. I suppose eventually everyone has to make money but its another channel down to team deepstate.

  8. People in the U.S think this kind of common-sense logic diverges from the status quo because we're so blinded within the bubble of U.S. Corporate media-manipulated delusion. For the most part, the world sees us. They see the hypocrisy.

  9. I've always said the Gaza open air prison is much the same as the Warsaw Ghetto of Nazi occupied Poland. The inhabitants, all Jews were treated almost the same as the Palestinians today. One would think, reflecting back on that experience, Israel wouldn't want to be compared to their former oppressors. Or even apartheid South Africa.

  10. I am so sick of this anti-Semitic, anti-Israel garbage. Israel has tried to negotiate at every turn but the Palestinians don’t think that Israel even has a right to exist. How many Muslim countries have a significant Jewish population with full right. The answer is fucking zero. Any land that Israel has taken in war is theirs by right of conquest. Especially since they did not start any of those wars. Let me know if you think the Palestinians would treat the Jews better if they were in power. The answer is an unequivocal no. It would be another holocaust.
