The fresh faces and voices you’ll hear more from

Not every interview is with a Democratic Socialist, Many are. What stands out to me is how these folks raise "economic instability” as a major cross-class issue. Except for Bernie, another DS, you don’t hear many candidates reflecting how “close to the edge” 60% of all Americans have been at one or more times.
