Politics And Reality Radio:  Digby On The Trumpocalypse; Dean Baker: Yes, The Economy Is Rigged

This week, Heather "Digby" Parton talks about what went wrong in 2016, what our future under the Trump regime may look like and how the media isn't prepared to hold the first aggressively post-truth president's feet to the fire.

Then we're joined by Dean Baker, co-director of the Center for Economic and Policy Research, to talk about his new book, Rigged: How Globalization and the Rules of the Modern Economy Were Structured to Make the Rich Richer.

Playlist:
Alabama Shakes: "Hold On"
Sad Clown with a Golden Voice: "Royals"
