Reflections on Woody Guthrie from Pete Seeger and former Senator Fred Harris … and a nun tells why the Republican budget contradicts the gospel.
Our first guest today is a truly great American, perhaps the leading progressive icon of our times. In honor of the centennial of the birth of Woody Guthrie, Pete has some fun telling stories on Woody, and revealing the history of the anthem “This Land is Your Land.”
Fred Harris was a populist when he was the U.S. senator from Oklahoma. He still is, as a professor at the University of New Mexico. He talks with us about the legacy of Woody Guthrie and the lessons we have learned from the Dust Bowl Era of American history.
