Every so often I like to bring back activists who I've interviewed before or discussed their material. Eleanor Goldfield holds that distinction for one specific reason; she is not only very good at doing but very good at articulating the Progressive message.

I recently watched several of Eleanor Goldfield's shows, Act Out! which is featured on Free Speech TV and at her website ArtKillingApathy.com. I thought it was time to have her again on Politics Done Right. She did not disappoint.
