Show #221 | Guest: D.D. Guttenplan | Show Summary: Who are the new progressive leaders emerging to lead the post-Trump return to democracy in America? National political correspondent and award-winning author D.D. Guttenplan's new book The Next Republic is an extraordinarily intense and wide-ranging account of the recent fall and incipient rise of democracy in America.
The Next Republic profiles eight successful activists who are changing the course of American history right now: Jane McAlevey, Chokwe Antar Lumumba, Jane Kleeb, Carlos Ramirez-Rosa, Waleed Shahid, Corbin Trent, Zack Exley, and Zephyr Teachout.
Additionally, the book ties in the election and first year of the Trump presidency to the current rise of populism of the left, and stakes a claim for seeing beyond the Trump ascendancy.
