Populism: Then & Now

Print More

Populism has been in the news lately– whether its members
of the Tea Party or members of the political left citing its philosophy.  We look into populism-which
positions the rights of the people against the privileged elite.  We explore its history, how it’s changed, and
talk about who lays claim to the philosophy today.  Our guest is Dartmouth College Government
Professor Dean Lacy. Listen

Also, on Town Meeting Day VPR’s Ross Sneyd gives us an
update on Town Meetings that are in progress, and a preview of issues VPR news
is covering. Listen 

And, VPR’s Betty Smith
checks in from a Town Meeting Lunch in West Windsor. Listen
