On this week’s Lever Time, host David Sirota is joined by Philadelphia City Councilmember Kendra Brooks and former Vermont Lt. Governor David Zuckerman - both of whom won their seats as members of third parties. They discuss the obstacles third party candidates face, the blowback they faced for running against the duopoly, and how they work with the major parties once in office. They also discuss lessons for those who want to build third parties in their own communities.
