Talk of the Bay
Democracy and elections—where did we go wrong and how can we fix it?
/

On Talk of the Bay, three other KSQD hosts join Suki Wessling to talk about how we got from there to here.

Ronnie Lipschutz, host of Sustainability Now, is Emeritus Professor of Politics at UCSC and runs the Sustainable Systems Research Foundation. Jill Cody, host of Be Bold America, wrote the book, “America Abandoned: The Secret Velvet Coup That Cost Us Our Democracy,” which explores how powerful forces intentionally abandoned democracy. Christine Barrington, co-host on Talk of the Bay, is a local community activist working for positive, solution-focused action.

All three guests draw not only from the interviews that they’ve done on their shows, but also their extensive experience in the world of work and political action. We discuss the history of the country, the forces that have shaped it since the founding, and where we are today. Most importantly, we discuss positive actions that anyone can take to get more involved in their community—no matter what side of the political spectrum they’re on.
