Your Call: Big money and the corruption of the US political system

Mar 28, 2016

On the March 29th edition of  Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with Wendell Potter and Nick Penniman, authors of Nation on the Take: How Big Money Corrupts Our Democracy and What We Can Do About It.

The authors write about how the marriage of wealth and political influence has strangled the political system, leaving us unable to address our most pressing problems. How has big money changed our relationship with politics and policy making? And what’s the path to reform? It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you. 

Guests:

Wendell Potter, senior analyst at the Center for Public Integrity and author of Deadly Spin

Nick Penniman, executive director of Issue One and former director of the Huffington Post Investigative Fund
