I’m not much of a Lefty or a progressive. I’ve never considered myself to be a democratic socialist. I tend to be suspicious of large groups of people who assemble under any banner to do virtually anything. Yet I’m excited about Bernie Sanders presidential campaign. And while I plan to vote for Bernie in the Maryland primary, this podcast is NOT intended to evangelize for him. Rather, I’ll be exploring exactly why voters and volunteers are so excited about Bernie’s candidacy — and how his ca ...

After months of debates and canvassing and phone calls and strategizing and a seemingly endless tsunami of talking heads & political analysis, it’s finally time to cast our votes here at home in the Maryland Democratic primary. In this episode, Caleb and I chat about Bernie’s campaign thus far... about seeing how the political sausage gets made... …
 
Paul Kirk is almost the definition of The Establishment (Democratic party division). Mr. Kirk is the former chairman of the Democratic National Committee (1985-1989). He served as a U.S. Senator from Massachusetts from 2009 to 2010, when he was appointed to fill the vacancy created after the death of Senator Ted Kennedy. Kirk has also served as cha…
 
Noam Chomsky is an American linguist, philosopher, cognitive scientist, historian, social critic, anti-war activist, and a world-renowned voice of the very progressive left. For more than half a century, Chomsky taught at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He’s the author of more than a hundred books, including Manufacturing Consent: The Po…
 
When Democrats went to the polls in South Carolina about a week ago, they handed Hillary Clinton a huge victory. She won 74 percent of the vote to Bernie’s 26 percent, mostly because Hillary was the choice of most of South Carolina’s African American voters. And it’s Hillary’s ability to connect with African American voters — and with Latinos too —…
 
On a Thursday night in January 2013, federal agents from Immigration and Customs Enforcement raided the home of Erika Andiola in Phoenix, Arizona. Without a warrant, the agents arrested Erika’s mother and brother, put them on a bus, and began the process of deporting them back to Mexico. Hours later, in a panic, Erika posted a plea for help on YouT…
 
This episode is just a few minutes long, but I didn’t want to wait until I produced another complete episode before I shared a special audio clip with you. It features a bit of insight from Robert Reich, who served as the U.S. Secretary of Labor under President Bill Clinton, and who now teaches public policy at the University of California at Berke…
 
After the Iowa caucus and the New Hampshire primary, Bernie Sanders already trails Hillary Clinton in the delegate count, 394 to 44. Which seems outrageous to a lot of people because Bernie tied Hillary in Iowa, and won big in New Hampshire. Why the massive delegate gap? It’s all about the superdelegates. Here, in a nutshell, is how it works: The D…
 
On a cold weekend afternoon last February, my son Caleb and I were searching for a good movie on Netflix. And we ended up watching a documentary called Inequality for All. The star of the documentary is Robert Reich, who served as Secretary of Labor during the (Bill) Clinton administration, and who now is a professor of public policy at the Univers…
 
This past Monday in Iowa, the 2016 election season finally began in earnest with actual voters casting actual votes. As my son and I watched the whole thing unfold from our home in Maryland, we felt like we were missing the Main Event. As I’ve mentioned with monotonous regularity on this podcast, Caleb and I spent a week in Iowa last August just ou…
 
I’ve been a longtime admirer of Michael Dukakis, first when he served as Governor of Massachusetts (where I grew up), and later when he became the Democratic party’s nominee for president in 1988. My memories, though, are less about his policies, and more about him personally: Dukakis always struck me as a decent, upstanding guy. When Gov. Dukakis …
 
Over the past eight months or so, I’ve learned a lot about what Bernie Sanders thinks about the economy, health care, campaign finance reform, and lots of other issues. That’s because Bernie is basically an issues guy. He likes talking policy. But I keep wondering how that’s going to wear with voters over the long term, especially when the public o…
 
In 2004, journalist Bill Moyers interviewed Elizabeth Warren about the financial struggles of the middle class, especially the growing burden of household debt: Between 1990 and 2004, household debt doubled, from 4 trillion to 8 trillion dollars. At the time of Moyers’ interview, Warren was not yet a leader of the Progressive movement, not yet a U.…
 
In this episode you’ll hear from three people. Lyn DeWitt, a longtime friend of mine, is an ardent feminist and a strong supporter of Hillary Clinton. You heard Lyn in Part 1 of this mini-series, and you’ll hear the same clips of Lyn in part 2. This time, though, the rebuttal to Lyn will come from her 20-year-old daughter Anna Kelly. She’ll respond…
 
In this episode (and the next one), we explore the women’s vote, and the gender gap — or lack of one — between Hillary supporters and Bernie believers. Put another way: I’ll be asking why some women think that putting a woman in the White House is Priority Number One, while other women have decided that gender loyalty matters far less than the cand…
 
Is the Democratic National Committee intentionally sidelining Bernie Sanders to prevent him from winning the Democratic nomination? Or to put it more bluntly: Is the DNC in the tank for Hillary Clinton? That question has been bouncing around for a while. It popped up over the summer when the DNC announced there would be only six officially sanction…
 
In this episode, I’ll be sharing part 2 of my interview with John Lee Dumas. As you may remember from part 1 (Episode #13), John is the host of Entrepreneur on Fire, which is one of the most popular business podcasts on iTunes. It’s also one of the most profitable: John and his partner Kate Erickson are making a fortune running what’s become an onl…
