The Matt McNeil Show – May 8, 2018

Matt is joined by Heather Klassen a southwest Minnesota native, is running for the Minnesota House of Representatives, District 23A. Also Gary Kaunonen joins to talk about his book “Flames of Discontent” Based on the most thorough base of documentary evidence that any study of this strike has engaged, Flames of Discontent breaks significant new ground in exploring, narrating, and interpreting one of the most important strikes in Minnesota history. Gary Kaunonen weaves his primary sources together so effectively that his readers are transported to 1916 and feel that we are listening in person to workers’ meetings, picket lines, and tavern debates.
