White Picket Fence

American Dream

Episode Summary

Throughout the 2020 election, Trump made it pretty clear he was banking his hopes for a second term on one particular group: suburban housewives. This week, host Julie Kohler takes us back to the 1950s, to the origins of the suburbs, and to the birth of the conservative American housewife.
