With Biden entering the White House in 2021 and the slim potential for a blue Senate, there’s conversation to be had about the role of progressives and progressive ideas in the Democratic party.

Guests:

Jenifer Fernandez Ancona, co founder and vice president of way to win Way to Win, a national donor and organizer network that works for progressive causes
