Consumer advocate Ralph Nader spent the better part of two decades dreaming up a museum with a highly specific, slightly bizarre theme: tort law. In late 2015, that dream became a reality with the opening of the American Museum of Tort Law in downtown Winsted, Connecticut.
This hour, we broadcast live from inside that museum. We check out its exhibits and upcoming events. We also discuss Nader’s most recent book, Return to Sender, and get his thoughts on the 2016 presidential race.
On Saturday, April 2, the American Museum of Tort Law will kick off its new season with the "Grand Spring Reawakening," a program featuring Mitchell Garabedian ("Spotlight"), Jan Schlichtmann ("A Civil Action"), and Ralph Nader. The event will begin at 10:30 am at the Winsted United Methodist Church in Winsted, Connecticut.
