Robert Scheer is the editor-in-chief of Truthdig. He's also a professor at the University of Southern California's Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism, and host of the KCRW podcast Scheer Intelligence. For decades, Bob was the national correspondent, and then columnist, for the Los Angeles Times. He's the author of many books, including The Great American Stickup, The Pornography of Power, and most recently They Know Everything About You: How Data-Collecting Corporations and Snooping Government Agencies Are Destroying Democracy.



Jodie Evans along with several other women started Codepink in 2002 in an effort to prevent the US invasion of Iraq through confrontations with members of government. Evans also ran California governor Jerry Brown's presidential campaign in 1992. In their conversation, Evans tells Robert Scheer what it was like to run a campaign against Bill Clinton and the similarities she sees with Hilary Clinton's campaign today. She also discusses her ideas about feminism and reconciling them with the possibility of a female president. Finally, Evans tells Scheer how fighting for a living wage as a hotel maid in Las Vegas started her on her path to campaign manager and ultimately Codepink founder.
