Bhaskar Sunkara is the founding editor and publisher of Jacobin magazine. He is also the former vice-chair of Democratic Socialists of America and author of The Socialist Manifesto: The Case for Radical Politics in an Era of Extreme Inequality.

On this recent episode of ourVoices, we discussed the resurgence of the term “democratic socialism” in US politics and the future of the Democratic party beyond 2020.
