Alt darling DiFranco spoke warmly about Sanders on the podcast Kreative Kontrol. "Bernie Sanders is a really strong voice out there now, and I'm very heartened to see the momentum behind him," she said. "I mean, he's pretty darn awesome. And that's what I think we need to see more of. I mean the evidence is right there — all around the Trump superstardom — that people are longing for people to buck the system, to not play the game, to speak their mind."
