Bernie Sanders getting to know you

Rachel Maddow’s Thursday night show featured a look back at the Democratic presidential candidates younger selves, and it was fascinating. I honestly didn’t pay much attention to the parts about Martin O’Malley and Lincoln Chafee, but I never tire of hearing about Bernie Sanders rise through the political ranks from Mayor of Burlington VT to Congressman to Senator.

If you didn’t get a chance to see it Thursday, you can now.

Julianna Forlano joined me for a look back at the week that was, and then it was Flashback Friday time.

Since so many listeners reached out to thank me for playing the Rev. Dr. William Barber’s speech on Wednesday’s show, I figured today, I’d play back the interview I did with him last summer at Netroots Nation. And for our musical flashback, it was the legendary Richard Thompson, taped back in July of 1996 at Los Angeles’ now also legendary KSCA.

I’ll be back Monday morning with Joel Silberman, Ari Berman and, hopefully, you… radio or not!
