The recent losses of Jeremy Corbyn and Bernie Sanders, in large part due to an antagonistic media, show progressives that we cannot wait for the media to change, we need to build our own. The People's Media Platform interviews experts, practioners and people building progressive media to share how they built their platform, so you can too. We'll dive deep into media history, but most importantly, we'll walk-through how to build an audience, generate subscribers, and grow your platform. Together, we can collectively learn from each other to build a new media that disrupts and replaces the status quo.
