Season 2018 Episode 15 | 26m 46s

Those with good memories will recall the former governor that Andrew Cuomo constantly lavished during his first year in office. Ironically, it wasn't his father Mario. Dr. Robert Chiles sits down to discuss his new book on the former four-term governor and presidential candidate Al Smith titled "The Revolution of '28: Al Smith, American Progressivism, and the Coming of the New Deal."
