Who's ready for a little political revolution? Sen. Bernie Sanders (I–Vt.) announced this morning that he's running for president again, and already he's raised more than a million dollars from his non-oligarch fans. An extended analysis of the barky democratic socialist—his policy agenda-setting, his polling, his crowded lane—kicks off this week's Editors' Roundtable version of the Reason Podcast, featuring Nick Gillespie, Matt Welch, Peter Suderman, and special guest star Stephanie Slade.

Also coming under discussion: President Donald Trump's emergency declaration and stroke-inducing press conference, Amazon's New York pull-out, and whether America will ever again be in the mood for feel-good racial reconciliation movies featuring white protagonists.
