Horizon at End Times Episode 36
Join the authors of People Get Ready: The Fight Against a Jobless Economy and a Citizenless Democracy, Robert W. McChesney and John Nichols. We get to talk about the stuff that I’m always thinking about which is, what is going on, how we got here, and whats coming next? In a relatively short interview, they pack in some heavyweight information and issues within their book, in our rapidly changing technology-driven world. Together, they have authored numerous books, including Dollarocracy, and The Death and Life of American Journalism. They co-founded Free Press, a national media reform organization, with Josh Silver.
