It's a twofer this week. Brie traveled to Seattle to speak to activist Andre Stackhouse of Whole Washington about his group's effort to achieve Medicare for All in Washington State. He addressed skepticism about the ability to fund universal healthcare on the state level, concerns that a state-by-state approach drains focus from the national effort, and the strategic barriers to success. But first, I spoke to 2016 Green Party VP candidate and national spokesperson for Black Alliance for Peace Ajamu Baraka about third party politics, the importance of internationalism, BLM's controversial statement in support of the Cuban government, how being drafted into the Vietnam War radicalized him, and more. (No spoilers ;)).
