Impeachment Day One: John Nichols; Deportations Then and Now: Adam Hochschild; “The Great Eastern”: Howard Rodman

Listen HERE
Impeachment proceedings began yesterday–John Nichols comments; he has some doubts about “bribery” as a charge.
Also: it’s an unhappy anniversary: 100 years since the Palmer Raids. Adam Hochshild talks about deportations of people the government considered “undesirable” – in 1919–and also today.
Also, Howard Rodman reads from and talks about his new novel “The Great Eastern.” Ricky Jay called it “A splendid and notable achievement.”  11/15/19
