Daniel Grossman, supported by the Pultizer Center, has our story. Also, Bernie Sanders calls himself a democratic socialist. We talk to professor Sheri Berman about what democratic socialism is and how it compares to socialism more broadly. That and more, in hour one of Here & Now's March 5, 2020, full broadcast.
