Last week, we aired Part 1 of Michael's conversation with author Rebecca Traister about President Biden's first six months in office. Afterwards, Mike and Rebecca ended up in an unplanned, revealing and thoughtful discussion about #MeToo, Harvey Weinstein and sexual harassment in progressive media. Traister has written forcefully on issues of gender, feminism, politics and culture. They discuss how abusers remain in power for so long, why the prison system and locking up cartoon villains will not solve the problem, and the importance of solidarity and unions to confront the entrenched power structure.
