Reflecting on the Sanders Campaign – June 8, 2016

As Bernie Sanders lost the States of California and New Jersey last night, and as Hilary Clinton appears to be the nominee for the democratic party; Robert Reich, former Labor Secretary under Bill Clinton’s administration and a prominent supporter of Bernie Sanders join us for a conversation about of the Sanders campaign and the future of the movement that he has ignited.

Then Mark Kurlansky on the history of paper.



Robert Reich is Cancellor’s Professor of Public Policy at the University of California at Berkeley. He served as Secretary of Labor in the Clinton Administration. He has written several books, including “Aftershock,” “The Work of Nations,” and “Beyond Outrage,” and his most recent, “Saving Capitalism.”
