Joe Clement digs into the musical history behind some political rhetoric Joe Biden has used against Bernie Sanders lately. Joe will first share some historical audio of wobbly singer song-writer Haywire McClintock discussing how he introduced some of Joe Hill's most famous songs on the streets of Portland 110 years ago. We'll hear the song mentioned, followed by Joe's commentary on the perverse irony of how Joe Hill's anti-capitalist rhetoric ended up in Joe Binden's mouth.
