We’ve got great stuff on tap for our one-year anniversary episode. I start off by asking members of the Democratic National Committee “What are you thinking?” with a bizarre loyalty resolution aimed at Bernie Sanders. Then, I turn our attention to the right answer to the question of how to create economic growth—raise wages, not cut taxes.

From there, I check in with trade warrior Lori Wallach for a look at the inside fight—the wild lies and the truth—over a possible new framework for the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Newly elected progressive New York Assemblyperson Christine Pellegrino talks about her amazing win in a Republican Trump-supporting district and what it’s like to be in public office—and she gives tips for progressives looking to run. And we close, as usual, with our Robber Baron of the week: Chinese billionaire Cao Dewang.
