How the rural north came to embrace the Confederacy

This week, Joshua Holland kicks off the show with a report from Portland, where locals argue with their Fox News-loving parents over whether their city has really been burned to the ground -- and fail to convince them that it hasn't.
 
Then we are joined by Will Wilkinson, a senior fellow, at the Progressive Policy Institute, to talk about how America's growing urban-rural divide -- and rural America's embrace of Southern Culture -- are redrawing our ideological battle lines from their traditional North-South axis.
