3375 – Our Political Depression Problem w/ Rick Perlstein

It’s Casual Friday! Sam speaks with Rick Perlstein, historian, writer at The American Prospect, author of his most recent book Reaganland: America’s Right Turn 1976-1980, to discuss the state of U.S. politics in 2024. And then, a blast to the past: Sam, discussing the Supreme Court with Jimmy Dore, back in September 2016.
