Biden After Afghanistan: Alan Minsky; Ethel Rosenberg: Anne Sebba; Ed Asner: Ella Taylor Living in the USA

    • News

America’s longest war came to an end on Monday as the last troops left Afghanistan, 20 years after we started fighting there. How much have the disasters around the Afghan pullout hurt Joe Biden and his agenda? How much will it hurt the Democrats in the midterms next November? Alan Misnky comments.
Also: The life, and death, of Ethel Rosenberg, the accused “atom spy”: who was she before she was framed by the FBI, before she called their bluff, and went to her execution? Anne Sebba has written a really good book about that—it’s called “Ethel Rosenberg: An American Tragedy.”
Plus: our TV critic Ella Taylor will talk about Ed Asner, who died on Sunday – he was one of the most active progressives in Hollywood for decades--and he helped transform television. Also: our Labor Day weekend pick: “The Big Scary “S“ Word,” a new doc about democratic socialism.
