Talkin’ Socialism

Episode 68 A Tale of 2 Cities and Rev. Edward Pinkney

Recorded August 25, 2016. It’s a story of racism, class, corporate power and the denial of democracy and justice. It is a story of how neoliberal policies are affecting all parts of our country. Tom Broderick interviews Robert McKay and Paul Sakol about how Reverend Edward Pinkney ran up against an obdurate and vindictive local Establishment that has put him in jail… for possibly a long time.
