On Monday, we hosted our weekly Callin show, Lever Live, where David Sirota was joined by special guests to discuss how to build a third party. We also took questions from the audience LIVE on air.

Due to the cataclysmic failures of the two-party system here in the United States, is it time to build a real third party — if that is even possible? On this episode of Lever Live, David discussed the realities and viability of building a third party with Maurice Mitchell, national director of the Working Families Party, and Vermont state Sen. Chris Pearson, a member of the Vermont Progressive Party.

David, Maurice, and Chris explored the pros and cons of third-party movements. Can such efforts only be successful at the local level? Is it possible for third-party politicians to actually affect change? Are Democrats and Republicans willing to play nice with outsiders?
