Episode Info:

Today, socialism is a misunderstood political buzzword. In this episode, we ask you to set aside preconceptions to look at the historical roots of the movement and what it meant to workers with few protections. In 1912, Terre Haute native Eugene V.

While he didn't win, his campaign illustrates the power of third parties to shift major party platforms.
