The Marc Steiner Show

July 4, 2012 – Hour 2

Our guest this hour is author, innovator, former Obama White House advisor, and activist Van Jones. Jones is an internationally renowned human rights and clean energy advocate, and is co-founder of the Rebuild the Dream campaign, a platform for ways that regular people can help transform the U.S. economy. We will be talking about his book of the same name, released last month, which explores what he claims are seven major missteps made by the White House and its supporters after Obama’s 2008 victory and introduces a game plan for “turning anger into action, protest into power and suffering into solutions.”

 

At the end of the hour, we have a short tribute from our archives to Studs Terkel, who was born 100 years ago today.
