In this episode we discuss Jimmy Carter’s policies as President (1977-1981) both domestic and foreign. In Part 1, we look into his rise to prominence via the Trilateral Commission, his race-baiting during the 1976 Campaign, his embrace of Neo-Liberal policies, and his deregulation of key industries–all of which led to the rise of Ronald Reagan and Reagan’s Policies.

Students for a Democratic Society said in the Port Huron statement, “looking uncomfortably to the world we inherit…” We discuss the current version of that discomfort that today’s students and youth are inheriting as the pandemic, economic collapse, the climate crisis and political crisis are all crashing down. With Bill, we discuss politics on campus at the University of Connecticut (where he’s currently a student), issues of student debt, the work force, climate change, healthcare and more.
In our latest episode, Bob interviews Scott about his recent article “Why 2021 needs more direct action.”
