Ep 64: A Case for Militant Politics

This episode starts with what inspired me to start doing the show. Then focuses on how big reforms get done and how important it is to be militant with a break down of the New deal and the growth of union membership. I then go into what I would call good socialist policy with a housing guarantee but a mis-save cut other topics like public banking and free mass transit, which are listed in the sources to read about.
