Episode #15: David and Goliath, Part 398

Episode #14: 'Respectability Politics' is the Establishment telling you to STFU

An update on Bethany's crusade to get Ordinary People onto the County Committee (yeah why should they get all the caps?). Spoiler alert: it ain't going well, not by any fault of our determined cohost. We also talk about respectability politics and why its just another way to shut us up. Like the political equivalent of saying, 'you'd be prettier if you smiled' or 'I hate when women talk too much.'

Episode #9: Where We Confront our Congressman and Nothing Happens

Just like that old Jimmy Stewart movie. Except it was us, our kids, and a bunch of community activists talking to our congressman about the humanitarian crisis on the border. And we didn't save the day. We also discuss boring middle of the road democrats vs. the bold, uncorrupt, idealistic badasses primarying some of these old farts. Especially our #1 badass woman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in NY-14. (We fucking love you, Alexandria.)
