Recorded live in Philadelphia, Jon is joined by the city's new district attorney Larry Krasner, Ezra Miller and his band Sons of an Illustrious Father, the Roosevelt Institute's Mike Konczal, comedian Franchesca Ramsey, and writer Dylan Marron for a special action-packed episode focused on economic inequality and what we can do about it. Yes, we cover all the hits. Corporate power and consolidation! Inequities in the justice system! Trump's racism and economic populism! Republican policies that make things worse and Democratic policies that don't go far enough! Plus, we yell about Paul Ryan, teachers being underpaid, and how we need to stop blaming globalization and robots for everything. It was a really fun show about an important issue and you will like it.
