Both Sides #56: The Upswing

Episode #56 – On this special episode of Both Sides, we welcome award winning authors Robert Putnam and Shaylyn Romney Garrett! In their book “The Upswing,” the authors state that history holds the answers to how we move out of these tumultuous times. They argue that America’s Gilded Age shows remarkable similarity to our own, including a gap between rich and poor, and a societal focus on “I” rather than “we.”

Putnam and Romney Garrett also serve as the featured guest for APS’ annual Evening at the Square event. Learn more.
