    On today's special episode of Loud & Clear, host Brian Becker is joined by third party candidates for President, Jill Stein of the Green Party, and Gloria La Riva of the Party for Socialism and Liberation.

    They assess the huge outpouring of support for Bernie Sanders who overcame a 40% deficit to match Hillary Clinton in a dead heat in the Iowa caucuses that marked the beginning of the 2016 Presidential election cycle.

    They discuss the significance of the Iowa primary results, what's behind the rise of Bernie Sanders and the appeal of his democratic socialist agenda, and what role progressive third parties can play in the U.S electoral and political arena. They also examine how the Republican Party establishment is likely to rally behind Marco Rubio as an alternative to Ted Cruz and Donald Trump.
