Podcast Spotlight: "It Could Happen Here" Takes Listeners On a Hypothetical Journey Through a Second Civil War

Journalist Robert Evans is no stranger to the front lines of civil conflict. Throughout 2016 and 2017, the former Cracked.com editor and host of the “Behind the Bastards” podcast covered the Iraqi Civil War from an up close and personal perspective. He walked away from the experience convinced that their terrifying present was going to be America’s future if the country didn't do something—fast. Now, on his “It Could Happen Here” podcast, Evans delivers a wake-up call designed to show listeners the danger he sees looming behind the political Twitter feuds and ongoing protests.

In the nine-part series coming to iHeartRadio soon, Evans walks listeners through a potential second American Civil War, including how it could break out and where it could lead. Using hard facts, historical anecdotes and his own experiences reporting from two real civil wars in Iraq and Ukraine, he’ll leave you realizing that it could happen here.

Each episode reveals more of our possible future, discussing the current events that might spark a conflict and offering insight on how the government could stop it. From accounts of drone bombs assassinating police officers, to observations on the rural insurgency that’s starving America’s cities, Evans offers up real-world examples and brings in expert commentary.

“It Could Happen Here” is not intended to stir the pot of conspiracy-mongering or create a panic.  Rather, it’s meant to serve as a sober dissection of the Second American Civil War, before it happens.
