Three notable & highly entertaining populists, in their own words:
- Canadian reformist politician Tommy Douglas (d.1986), telling his comic fable about unresponsive politicians, Mouseland
- Texas journalist & commentator Molly Ivins (d. 2007), speaking in Berkeley, CA, around 2005. (Don't miss her stories about governor Rick Perry.)
- Texas commentator, agitator, & former state official Jim Hightower, with some recent brief podcasts.
This installment was previously broadcast, as NWN #187, in October 2011.
