On this edition of Your Call, we’ll speak with labor organizer Jane McAlevey and historian Nancy MacLean about how democracy has been undermined by big money, and how to win it back.

  

In The Know-It-Alls, former New York Times technology columnist Noam Cohen chronicles the political rise of Silicon Valley.

 In her new book Democracy in Chains: The Deep History of the Radical Right’s Stealth Plan for America, historian Nancy MacLean tells the story of the Nobel Prize-winning political economist James McGill Buchanan who played a key role in the rise of the radical right.

Historian Nancy MacLean joins us to discuss her new book “Democracy in Chains: The Deep History of the Radical Right’s Stealth Plan for America.”
