Sociologist Arlie Hochschild understands the roots of America’s political divide better than most. Her book “Strangers In Their Own Land: Anger And Mourning On The American Right,” takes a trip to rural Louisiana during the Obama years, where she interviews dozens of Tea Party conservatives. Many of her subjects would go on to support Donald Trump, and could vote that way again.

This is an extended rerun of an interview between Arlie Hochschild and Host David Gelber.
