Progressive Populist Jim Hightower Reflects on Age of Trump

Progressive populist and former Texas Agriculture Commissioner Jim Hightower joins us for a discussion on Donald Trump and our current political moment. I spoke with Hightower at the People’s Summit in Chicago. Also at the conference was Mary Watkines, a founding member of Organization United for Respect at Walmart, or OUR Walmart in Washington State. We’ll air my conversation with Watkines about her experience at Walmart and what motivated her to become active in the labor movement. Finally, a new documentary series airing on the History Channel, brings for the first time to a mainstream cable audience, the sordid history of the CIA’s involvement in the war on drugs. My guest Anthony Lapp is the Executive Producer of the 4-part series called simply America’s War on Drugs.  Hosted by Sonali Kolhatkar.
