On Sunday, we were proud to debut the AlterNet Radio Hour, hosted by Joshua Holland, on We Act Radio in Washington DC. It's a weekly show featuring progressive journalists, activists and maybe a few wonks.
Among our first guests was Thomas Frank, a columnist with Harper's and author of the 2005 best-seller, What's the Matter With Kansas, and his new book, Pity the Billionaire.
In the podcast below, which runs about 16 minutes, Frank and Holland discuss the great bait-and-switch that allowed the right to bounce back after conservative economic policies led directly to the greatest downturn since the Great Depression.
