Ari Berman interview

I interviewed Ari Berman, writer for The Nation magazine, at the Wyoming State Democratic Convention. We discussed how progressive politics can make a comeback in a red state, and how Wyoming is its own unique breed. Oh, and we mention boomsticks as a GOP talking point.

Because I love the readers of Cognitive Dissonance, you can listen to the interview before it airs this Friday on KOCA 93.5 FM in Laramie.

More on Ari Berman:

Berman has written extensively about American politics, foreign policy, and the intersection of money and politics. His stories have also appeared in the New York Times, Rolling Stone, and the Guardian, and he is a frequent guest and political commentator on MSNBC, C-Span, and NPR. His first book, Herding Donkeys: The Fight to Rebuild the Democratic Party and Reshape American Politics, was published in October 2010.

Follow Ari Berman on Twitter, visit his website, and read his recent work. It’s worth it, folks.
