DAVID CAY JOHNSTON, Pulitzer Prize–winning reporter and author of THE MAKING OF DONALD TRUMP, has been covering Trump since the late ‘80s. While most of the media focuses on tweets and White House intrigue, he co-founded DCReport.org to keep track of what they’re not telling you. Johnston joins me to talk about the revelations in his #2 NYTimes best-seller, IT’S EVEN WORSE THAN YOU THINK: What the Trump Administration Is Doing to America.
FRANCES MOORE LAPPE, (Diet For A Small Planet; Eco-Mind) whose work for decades has consistently updated the best the 60’s had to offer and ADAM EICHEN, who graduated from college in 2015, met on a pro-democracy march and have co-authored a book that brings their generations together – Daring Democracy—Igniting Power, Meaning, and Connection for the America We Want.
I’ve known JODIE EVANS for over 20 years. And throughout that time, she’s been a tireless activist, advocate, and communicator for peace, justice and the planet.

JOHN NICHOLS, is National Affairs Correspondent for The Nation and Associate Editor of The Capital Times in Madison, so his beat includes the nation’s capital as well Wisconsin’s. His latest book, HORSEMEN OF THE TRUMPOCALYPSE: A Field Guide to the Most Dangerous People in America, reports on over 40 players on Team Trump. My biggest question for Nichols: What needs to happen so that Wisconsin and the rest of the Rust Belt dumps Trump in 2018 and 2020?
Free Forum – NEW – Naomi Klein: No is Not Enough: Resisting Trump’s Shock Politics and Winning the World We NeedWritten on August 3rd, 2017
Naomi Klein (No Logo; Shock Doctrine; This Changes Everything) makes it very clear that even successful resistance is not enough. We must seize this moment to pursue nothing less than the world we long for – successfully confronting climate change and inequality while rebuilding our sense of human community. In addition to No, we need to offer a compelling, inviting, and just Yes. She offers the example of The Leap Manifesto, that she helped hatch in Canada, which commits to building a society in which we care for the earth and each other.
