After a number of disappointing elections, many people have been left asking “Who is the Democratic Party?” In this episode, we’ll not only take on that question, but we’ll take a step further. Who will the Democratic Party be going forward? Will there even be a Democratic Party going forward?

This episode features Thomas Frank, author and former columnist for The Wall Street Journal and Harper’s, and founding editor of The Baffler, and Inge Kjemtrup, chair of Democrats Abroad United Kingdom.
