20221216 Nicole Sandler Show - Ghosts of Progressive Activism Past (and Maybe Future!)

Today we salute the actions of the progressive activists who paved the way, focusing on one who was in the thick of it all. David Fenton's new book is "The Activist's Media Handbook: Lessons from Fifty Years as a Progressive Agitator". We'll discuss the history he was part of, and try to get to the bottom of why things are as they are now... David Fenton was there, working on the No Nukes concerts, in the campaign to free Nelson Mandela and end apartheid, legalize marijuana and end racist drug laws. He worked at High Times and Rolling Stone Magazine, and hung out with Abbie Hoffman and other legendary activists. I'm thinking our conversation will be part memories and reminiscences, and part primer to light a fire under the people who should carry the torch today and going forward.
