On today's episode I talk to journalist David Sirota. In David's
long career, he has done a great deal of work both inside politics
and outside, reporting on politics. In the early aughts, he worked
as a political strategist and campaign advisor on a number of
progressive campaigns, soon after transitioning to journalism,
which included everything from a nationally syndicated newspaper
column to investigative reporting. His work has garnered him a
number of awards including the prestigious Izzy Award for
Journalism, and he has written three books, two of which are New
York Times Bestsellers. This last year has been a busy one for
David, not only did he serve as the speechwriter for Bernie
Sanders' primary campaign, but in addition, he is the publisher of
The Daily Poster, an editor at large at Jacobin Magazine and a
columnist at The Guardian.
