A bigger table: A look at third parties and our political system
Why is the two-party system so entrenched here in the United States?
This hour, we talk about third parties. We learn about a new third party, discuss the history and political viability of third parties, and talk with a third party candidate.
- Dr. Amy Chai: Independent Party candidate for Connecticut’s 3rd U.S. Congressional District
- Seth Masket: Author of The Inevitable Party: Why Attempts to Kill the Party System Fail and How they Weaken Democracy
- Andrew Yang: Co-founder and co-chair of the new Forward Party; he previously ran as a Democratic candidate for president and for mayor of New York City
