Yesterday’s Man: The Case Against Joe Biden

Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Branko Marcetic, a staff writer at Jacobin magazine and a 2019-2020 Leonard C. Goodman Institute for Investigative Reporting fellow. His new book is called Yesterday’s Man: The Case Against Joe Biden.


Just a few months ago media pundits were predicting that former Vice President Joe Biden was as shoe-in for the Democratic Presidential nomination.

He was polling higher than other candidates and promised to save the nation’s soul, wooing voters with the idea of “electability” in the November faceoff against President Donald Trump.

But by February Biden’s numbers dropped precipitously pushing him down to fourth place in the nation’s first primary in Iowa and showing similar numbers in national polls.

Sonali's guest Branko Marcetic calls Biden “Yesterday’s Man” in a new book and that title could not be more prescient.

Rising Up with Sonali is a radio and television show that brings progressive news coverage rooted in gender and racial justice to a wide audience.

Rising Up With Sonali was built on the foundation of Sonali Kolhatkar's earlier show, Uprising, which became the longest-running drive-time radio show on KPFK in Los Angeles hosted by a woman.
