Ep. 1: Alicia Garza and Linda Sarsour  

Joining me for my very first episode are Black Lives Matter co-founder Alicia Garza and Woman's March co-chair Linda Sarsour! We discuss the Woman's March, Oprah and the Golden Globes, and our organizing tactics for 2018.

Ep. 2: The Progressive Wave with John Nichols (1)

In part one of this episode, I'm joined by John Nichols, National Affairs correspondent for The Nation, to discuss a recent string of unlikely Democratic victories in traditionally Republican districts, from Wisconsin to Alabama. How we can build on this momentum and carry it forward? I also reflect on the government shutdown and how Democrats should be standing strong for Dreamers.

Ep. 2: The Progressive Wave with Delegate Elizabeth Guzmán (2)

In part two, I'm thrilled to talk with Elizabeth Guzmán, the new Delegate representing Virginia's 31st District. She is a fellow immigrant, strong woman of color, and unapologetic progressive who defeated an eight-term Republican incumbent to become one of the first Latinas ever elected to the Virginia State House. And I discuss #MeToo, Rob Porter and the White House's shameful handling of domestic violence allegations against him.
