This is a inspiring exchange with award winning writer and journalist, Anne Nelson. Her new book, Shadow Networks, is a real eye opener on the secret networks of the radical right and how they use their influence and power to create policy. Listening to Anne here is so deeply informative and also activating, as she lists ways that we the listener can effectively get involved to strengthen our democracy.
