To kick off pledge drive on A Public Affair on Monday October 14th, our host John Quinlan was joined by Robert McChesney- John Nichols about their newest book “Dollarocracy,” followed by Barbara Wright and Luciano Matheron from WYOU with more information about their new collaboration with the Madison Public Library.

Wright and Matheron discussed what’s happening with WYOU’s newest relationship with the library and how the WYOU board’s perseverance in keeping WYOU viable now are going to pay off, despite things heading in the opposite direction not too long ago.
