The Realignment

It’s a great time!

As a Warren/Sanders person, I disagree with most of Saagar and Marshall’s ultimate conclusions from a policy and often cultural standpoint, but I enjoy hearing their thought process and appreciate that they are able to both simplify big issues and complicate easy narratives. I am frustrated at times with the blind faith of many guests in thinking that “America is clearly better than every country in every way at all times.” Fortunately both hosts do a good job at bringing it back to reality most of the time.

I do wish they brought on more people on the left who address that class and race issues are both important like Keeanga-Yamagata Taylor, Imani Perry, or Zoé Samudzi.If you are interested in learning more about how the realignment has been at play in the Democratic Party, id recommend checking out “Don’t Blame Us” by Lily Geismer.

Overall, it’s great podcast and I look forward to listening every week.
