With the The Madison Reunion getting underway, Allen Ruff’s guest is Justin O’Brien, author of the new title Chicago Yippie ’68. It’s the remarkable personal coming-of-age memoir of youth in the sixties and people in the streets during the 1968 Democratic National Convention. They’re joined in the studio by Bert Zipperer, and on the phone by historian Max Elbaum, for a reflection on the activism of the sixties.
