Radical Minds is a show that airs every Thursday at 2 PM on WHPK 88.5 FM Chicago. Aired November 9th, 2017, this episode features an interview with Jack Ross conducted by your hosts, Erin Hagood, Stephanie Gomez and special guest host Neil Hare. 

Jack Ross is an independent historian and researcher, author of The Socialist Party of America: A Complete History.

On April 1st, 2016, during its eighth international convention in Chicago, Illinois, the Platypus Affiliated Society hosted a panel discussion entitled, “What is socialism? International social democracy.” The panelists were Bernard Sampson, a member of the CPUSA and a precinct chair in Houston, Texas, for the Democratic Party; Karl Belin, a socialist worker, writer, and member of the Pittsburgh Socialist Organizing Committee; Jack Ross, a freelance editor and historian, and author of The Socialist Party of America: A Complete History (2015); and Chris Cutrone, president of the Platypus Affiliated Society.
This panel invites you to reflect on the history of social democracy from a Leftist viewpoint. Such a perspective raises the specter of Socialist (Second) International - the Marxist political organization that led the workers movement for socialism around the turn of the 20th century.
