We're joined by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author Chris Hedges to get his take on the state of the left: What are the structural factors and ethical rationalizations that keep congressional progressives from taking the adversarial approach required to push a united Democratic government left? How can we parse good faith excuses from the bad, and what does history tell us about the way forward? But first, we check in with Zoe Muellner who is working to organize Colectivo, a midwestern coffee chain. And at the top, Virgil and Brie briefly follow up on the controversy surrounding this week's premium episode: Has Black Twitter really canceled Virgil?

Brie and Virgil host veteran progressive journalist and author John Nichols. In one of our favorite interviews, the The Nation journalist provides much needed historical context for the ongoing internecine battles on the left. He helps us answer the tough questions: How much risk tolerance should the left have for battles that must be fought, but aren't easily won? Who will emerge as the next A. Phillip Randolph poised to "make Biden do" what America needs? And what will happen if the progressive organizations that historically filled that role don't step up? Brie and Virgil discuss the Meghan Markle/Oprah interview and strategies for watching Family Feud.
