Author Frank DiStefano joins Monday's show.
Frank DiStefano

Many Americans are worried that the nation’s political parties are crumbling, and author Frank DiStefano is convinced those worries are warranted. But he also sees what’s happening as part of a natural cycle built into the structure of the U.S. from the get-go.

In his latest book, “The Next Realignment: Why America’s Parties Are Crumbling and What Happens Next,” DiStefano explores a variety of factors contributing to the country’s current political environment as well as potential paths forward.

DiStefano joined St. Louis Public Radio’s Jonathan Ahl for an in-depth conversation on Monday's St. Louis on the Air.
