Kojo gets longtime political activist Ralph Nader's perspective on a changing Washington.

In Ralph Nader’s nearly half-century-long career, he’s worn more than a few hats, from frequent presidential candidate to progressive political activist to consumer advocate. But beyond that, he's also a longtime Washingtonian. Kojo talks with Nader about the state of political activism in the U.S., and how Washington has changed at the federal and local levels since Nader first arrived in 1964.
