Salt Lake City, UT – After 30 years building a middle-class life, the journalist Joe Bageant headed home to Winchester, Virginia. It was there he became reacquainted with the reality of the nation's underclass. They're his people, "the great beery, NASCAR-loving, church-going, gun-owning America that has never set foot in a Starbucks." And to understand the America we live in, you have to understand them. Joe Bageant joins us with his book Deer Hunting with Jesus: Dispatches from America's Class War (Rebroadcast).
