Jane and Bernie Sanders.

Jane Sanders, Bernie Sanders’ wife and chief policy advisor, talks with Sally Mauk about what she’s learned on the campaign trail, the conduct of supporters, and sustaining a political movement.

"When I go to the rallies with Bernie, aside from being proud of him or inspired by him — which I still am — I am inspired by the people. When we walk away, we feel such a sense of responsibility, and we are humbled by the experience almost without exception. Looking at how hopeful, how wonderful, how committed the people in the crowds are; the ideas the have, their real desire to be involved in a vigorous, and rigorous I guess, democracy."

Listen to the full interview above.

Retired in 2014 but still a presence at MTPR, Sally Mauk is a University of Kansas graduate and former wilderness ranger who has reported on everything from the Legislature to forest fires.
