This was one of the best & most nuanced conversations I've ever had about #class & #poverty in America (& that intro!😭 Wow, thank you, @thebradking).

1 of the only podcasts I coulda talked abt the significance of po' white #RuthLangmore from @ozark wearing a #Tupac shirt.🔥🔥🔥
Wow - I forgot about all the cool stuff we discussed: state-level poverty programs, switching to a service-based economy in rural areas, the Case-Deaton white death paper, the liberal elite write-off of working class whites, white economic privilege, & class anger/resentment.
...specific ways for historians to get *real* history to average Americans, how to combat racism through class & labor issues, the pain & anguish of the "psychic death" of rural whites, & adapting a federal jobs program to the state level...
I may have even sounded like a politician at times, albeit a fiery one who slips up with an occasional "f*****g" thrown in for good measure...😉
