Jason Stanley on his latest book How Fascism Works: The Politics of Us and Them. Julie Kohn on lessons learned from the Texas power grid failure. Plus Bill Press with White House economic adviser Jared Bernstein.

Jason Stanley

In his newest book, Jason Stanley makes the case that nations don’t have to be fascist to suffer from fascist politics. He says that even with Trump gone, his authoritarian attack on democracy is still being embraced by Republicans.

Julie Kohn

After a historic winter storm left millions of Texans in the dark and without heat, energy experts are looking for ways to stop it from happening again. Julie Kohn says that means rethinking the state's isolation from the nation's power grid.

Jared Berstein

Bill Press with White House economic adviser Jared Berstein on the limits of trickle down economics and why Biden’s big infrastructure plan is the right response. If you'd like to hear the entire episode, visit BillPressPods.com.
