The Poverty Palace That Hate Built

Southern Poverty Law Center, Montgomery, AL.

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast for August 29, 2017, it’s the Loving Trump’s Hate edition of the show, with your hosts Todd Feinburg, radio talk show host; and Mike Stopa, nanophysicist extraordinaire.
