FROM THIS EPISODE

Journalist Thomas Frank has written several books, including the acclaimed What's the Matter with Kansas, as well as founded the magazine "The Baffler." His newest book, Listen, Liberal: Or, Whatever Happened to the Party of the People? seeks to understand why Democrats have moved away from addressing inequality over the past few decades. In their conversation, Frank tells Robert Scheer how the party has become class-based, now representing primarily the “professional” or upper socioeconomic class. Frank also talks about the Clintons' role in this shift and why he believes people who might have earlier voted democrat are now flocking to Donald Trump. Finally, Frank discusses why he believes Democrats need to be more self-critical now than ever.
