    Celebrity Activism, Social Media, & Taylor Swift

    Celebrity Activism, Social Media, & Taylor Swift

    Is there a difference between internally motivated activism, and externally pressured activism? What role does social media play in influencing well-intentioned, yet misinformed people? And are any of us really that different from Taylor Swift? All this, plus as much shower curtain as you can possibly handle. [[Panel on the "Equality Act" that I recommend in the video.

I'll do a politics update on Wednesday after the NH primaries, which will be the same as Iowa, but with fewer burning dumpsters.
