#NecessaryTrouble & Revolution w/@sarahljaffe — #KatieSpeakShow Ep50 08/20/2016

In brief: I’m thrilled to bring you Sarah Jaffe previewing her brand new, amazing book “Necessary Trouble: Americans in Revolt.” We talked about everything from what constitutes a revolution to why we’re both hopeful that right now is a special opportunity of brewing unrest (complete with Ghostbusters reference). She took so much time to chat with me — from an airport, no less! — that our conversation is most of this show. You’re welcome.

Note: This show is available to stream and download for free so it can be accessible for everyone. If you’re able, consider becoming a supporter for as little as $1/month at PATREON or making a one-time donation through PAYPAL. Thank you!
