April 30, 2016: What the Economy of Star Trek Says About Our Future; What’s Next for Sanders’ Movement?

This week, Joshua Holland begins with a rant about some ridiculous claims that the Democratic primaries are being rigged. There are lies, damn lies and statistics. 


Then we'll be joined by Manu Saadia, author of Trekonomics: The Economics of Star Trek. It's two nerd tastes that taste great together!

Finally, we'll speak with Stacey Hopkins, a grassroots team leader for Brand New Congress, a new PAC that hopes to move Bernie Sanders' agenda forward after the 2016 campaign.
