Episode Details

First aired: March 9, 2018.

Some of us have too much of this world’s goods, she wrote and we are thereby separated too widely from each other," said Eleanor Roosevelt, the subject of Blanche Wiesen Cook's new three-volume biography of the First Lady. Ahead of Women's History Month, Laura speaks to Cook about why Roosevelt's legacy continues to resonate during our current crises. Plus, a documentary by filmmaker Ross Watne on Arthurdale, the experimental community championed by Eleanor Roosevelt in post-depression West-Virginia.
