Prominent Labour Party Member of Parliament Jon Trickett this Sunday at 6 p.m. on the Campbell Conversations

 

Tune in to WRVO’s Campbell Conversations Sunday at 6 pm to listen as Maxwell Professor Grant Reeher interviews Jon Trickett

How did avowed socialist Jeremy Corbyn recently win election as Labour Leader in Britain, on an anti-war, pro-refugee platform? Are there lessons from that election which might apply to the U.S., and to the presidential run of Bernie Sanders? Are these rumblings of potential, more far-reaching political revolutions in the West? This week on the Campbell Conversations host Grant Reeher explores those questions with Jon Trickett, the first Member of Parliament to nominate Corbyn for Leader, and now one of his closest advisors.

Katrina vanden Heuvel, editor of The Nation, Sunday at 6 p.m. on the Campbell Conversations.

 

Tune in to WRVO’s Campbell Conversations Sunday at 6 pm to listen as Maxwell Professor Grant Reeher interviews Katrina vanden Heuvel

What has been the role, not of liberalism, but of the genuine Left, in recent American politics? What is its agenda, and its future? In this edition of the Campbell Conversations, host Grant Reeher talks with The Nation’s editor, Katrina vanden Heuvel, on the magazine’s 150th anniversary.  Since its founding in the Abolition era, the magazine has been an anchor of American progressivism and more radical alternatives–sometimes it’s been a lightning rod.  In their conversation, Reeher and Vanden Heuvel cover domestic politics and policy, inequality, and America’s role in the world. They also look at the current Democratic presidential field.
