Last month we returned from our 13th Annual Nation Cruise. It was a spirited week of discussion and debate, featuring Nation writers and editors and special guests like Jim Hightower and Judy Collins. The cruise is always a special experience, as cruisers enjoy a full week of seminars, panel discussions, performances and talks from leading progressive voices.
For the first time we’re posting the best of the nation cruise seminars as part of our ongoing "Nation Conversations" podcast series. Starting this week through December, we’ll be posting a new podcast each Wednesday. You can listen online or download and take the conversation on the road. It’s a great series, and we hope you enjoy it.
