Ep 56: When Zealots Gain Power


Subscribe:


Kirk, Kristin and Pat discuss the different ways that people who used to be considered on the extreme fringes of the political spectrum are now in some powerful positions—not just at the state and national levels, but local, too. Two concerned citizens from Sparta talk about how their community has been hijacked by a group dedicated to killing public education. And we’ll have the latest on the consequences of repealing reproductive health care rights for women.
