Politics And Reality Radio: Moms, Daughters & Feminism; Roy Edroso On Right-Bloggers

This week, we speak with Fairleigh Dickinson University political scientist Krista Jenkins, who used a unique database of data from mothers and daughters attending a women's college 30 years apart to offer some insight how their gender socialization and views of politics have changed since the heyday of the women's movement.

Then we're joined by the great Roy Edroso, an O.G. of the lefty blogosphere who writes the Alicublog and does a weekly column diagnosing the disorders of right-bloggers for The Village Voice. We talk Trump, and other stuff.

Last but not least, we'll talk to Harold Pollack, a professor of public policy at the University of Chicago (and also a mensch), to discuss structural racism in the Chicago PD, and the prospects for reform.
