This week I had the pleasure of speaking with Thomas Frank. Thomas is a political analyst, historian, and journalist. I wanted him to join me on Under The Skin as I’m currently reading his book The People, No: A Brief History of Anti-Populism—in which he examines the origin of the term “populism” in the United States, and discusses historical examples of populism, its adherents, and its detractors. Populism has gotten a bad wrap, and most people think it is something it is not. In this episode Thomas gives us a history lesson in Populism. You may be surprised by what you learn.
