Robert Scheer sits down with potential Green party presidential candidate, Jill Stein, to discuss her plans and why she thinks the Green Party is more relevant than ever.

Though former physician and previous Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein has not formally locked up the party’s nomination, she is expected to do so soon. In this in-depth conversation, Robert Scheer and Stein talk about her evolution from Harvard idealist to family physician to environmental activist and finally to political candidate. Stein discusses why she believes she and Bernie Sanders have much more common ground than differences although those differences do include stances on foreign policy and Israel. Stein also goes into the history of the Green Party and its support for cancelling student debt, which she believes could bring over many new voters. Scheer also talks about why he believes their agenda is not radical at all.
