From taking power to making power, a special report from Athens, Greece where many are asking if progressives in government can change much at all if people don’t first change society.

Music featured:  "Hook or Crook" by Antibales and "Histoire De Molly" by Ballake Sissoko & Vincent Segal.  Please write a review where ever you subscribe to this podcast.
