Red Scare is an American cultural commentary Podcast [1] founded in 2018 and hosted by Anna Khachiyan and Dasha Nekrasova in New York City.


Moscow-born Khachiyan[2] and Belarus-born Nekrasova critique Neoliberalism and Feminism that is both comedic and serious in tone, while also covering current topics in American culture and politics.[3] Conversations range from ISIS to the social media use ofAlexandria Ocasio-Cortez to Call-out culture. [2]

The show has been associated with the "dirtbag left."[4][5][6][7] It has been described in The Cut as "a critique of Feminism, and capitalism, from deep inside the culture they’ve spawned." [3] Several notable celebrities, artists, politicians, and cultural commentators have appeared on Red Scare, including Natasha Stagg, Juliana Huxtable, Tulsi Gabbard, Caroline Calloway, Angela Nagle, Ross Douthat, Ariana Reines, and Glenn Greenwald.
