As of this year, new data shows that for the first time since World War II middle class Americans are no longer a majority. We are a majority-poor country now. Death rates for young working people have increased substantially- for the first time in the modern era- because of poverty in general and lack of access to health care in particular. Why is it so expensive for working people to merely live, and why is it so expensive to get ahead or pay for a college education?

Where is all the money our work generates going to? How much money does the top 1% need to be happy? Have we reached 'Peak-Reagonomics'?- an era in which some combination of poverty, drug addiction, obesity, and despair haunt the lives of so many Americans? What can the Progressive agenda hope to do to make things better? Is there a chance this could all change with the 2020 election?- because people's lives are at stake.

Plus Thom reads from Harvey JK's book 'Make America Radical Again'.

Murder, infidelity, suicide, arson, overdose, religious cults, drug trafficking; this podcast explores the alleged true crime antics and criminal connections of musicians we love like Jerry Lee Lewis, The Rolling Stones, Tay K-47, Tupac Shakur, Mayhem, Amy Winehouse and many more. Why? Because real rock stars are more like feral, narcissistic animals than functioning members of society and that is precisely what makes them so damn entertaining. If you love true crime and you love music then get ready to love this podcast.
