Populism has been in the news lately-- whether its members of the Tea Party or members of the political left citing its philosophy.  We look into populism-which positions the rights of the people against the privileged elite.  We explore its history, how it's changed, and talk about who lays claim to the philosophy today.  Our guest is Dartmouth College Government Professor Dean Lacy. Listen

Also, on Town Meeting Day VPR's Ross Sneyd gives us an update on Town Meetings that are in progress, and a preview of issues VPR news is covering. Listen 

And, VPR's Betty Smith checks in from a Town Meeting Lunch in West Windsor. Listen
