Democratic National Convention

Youth Radio


Our friends at Youth Radio in Oakland sent a contingent of reporters to Philadelphia last week for the Democratic National Convention. One of them was Miles Bess. KALW’s Ben Trefny spoke with him about his experience inside and outside the convention.


On the June 12th edition of Your Call, we’ll discuss the Democratic Party platform, which adopts many of Senator Bernie Sanders’ policies

The Democratic National Convention kicked off in North Carolina Tuesday with an aggressive response to the criticism doled out last week at the Republican National Convention in Florida. Here's a few of the remarks that stood out:

TED STRICKLAND: If Mitt was Santa Claus, he would fire the reindeer and outsource the elves.

JULIAN CASTRO: Governor Romney has undergone an 'extreme makeover’, and it ain't pretty.

MICHELLE OBAMA: Barack knows the American dream because he's lived it.
