Sasha Abramsky Interview — Podcast October 21, 2013

Poverty in America: Never Mind What Conservatives Say, Poverty Is NOT the Fault of the Poor. Democratic Perspective co-hosts Mike Cosentino and Steve Williamson interview author and journalist Sasha Abramsky about his new book  The American Way of Poverty: How the Other Half Still Lives. The statistics are stunning — contemporary America is far from the Land of Opportunity that it once was. What poverty is like for the 47 million Americans on food stamps who live it every day is even more stunning. Sasha Abramsky has traveled all over the country talking to them, and has written a book about what they know, and we still refuse to take seriously. It’s a book every American should read.
