Political revolution ain’t beanbag. It’s hard work and requires taking on tough assignments. I talk about two of the efforts with my guests: Pat Harris joins us for a chat about his California primary bid to unseat incumbent Senator Dianne Feinstein. And Lane Windham stops by to chat about maybe even a bigger, important task: building up the ranks and political power of women leaders within unions, and generally in the workers’ advocates movement.
Our Robber Baron of the week is Peter Barbey, owner of the Village Voice, who is acting like any big corporate abuser in contract negotiations underway right now.
