Sunday Gang #3 -- Race in 2008

Sunday, March 16, 2008 by Dave Winer.

This has got to be the heaviest podcast I've ever done. It almost melted down, but it had a happy ending.  Permalink to this paragraph

Our guest this week is Chris Rabb, a blogger from Philadelphia. It was a three-way conversation with Nicco Mele in the middle, the real fireworks are between Chris and myself.  Permalink to this paragraph

The lesson from this election cycle imho, is that race, which has always been everywhere in US politics, is so close to the surface this time that we get a chance to hash out our differences, and if we want, find what we have in common. As always, when change happens, no pain no gain. But in the end, you hope it comes out the way this 50-minute podcast did, with an agreement to continue the conversation.  Permalink to this paragraph
