‘What are we actually doing here?’ Finding common ground in America

In a recent double bill, journalist Matt Taibbi joined author and anti-poverty advocate Joel Berg to discuss what happened in our recent presidential election and what’s next. Their talks and conversation cover ample ground, from the realities of the campaign trail and our political system, to our tendency to blame politicians instead of taking personal responsibility.

Joel Berg is the author of “America We Need to Talk: A Self-Help Book for the Nation,” and the CEO of Hunger Free America. Matt Taibbi is a contributing editor for Rolling Stone magazine. His latest book is “Insane Clown President: Dispatches from the 2016 Circus.” They spoke at Town Hall Seattle on March 2. Sonya Harris recorded the conversation.
