Ep. 513 - Something just happened in Georgia that almost NEVER happens when we fight for justice
Yesterday Jackie Johnson, the longtime DA of Glynn County, deep in Georgia, was charged with multiple crimes for her role in the murder and coverup of Ahmaud Arbery. Let me tell you why this matters so much
Ep. 512 - Climate change is real and it's impacting us right here, right now.
After Hurricane Ida devastated Louisiana, it just hit us hard here in New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania - with entire communities flooded, tornadoes everywhere, roads and trains shut down, and more. Nearly a dozen people died overnight. Let me unpack and explain what's really going on.
Ep. 511 - GoFundMe publicly confirms I've never stolen from anyone on their website
It's foolish that it came to this, but it was necessary nonetheless. Let me unpack and explain it.
Ep. 510 - Free Marvin Guy
Since before the Black Lives Matter Movement started, an innocent Black man named Marvin Guy has been languishing in the local county jail without every going to trial and without ever being convicted of a crime. It's almost been 8 years. This is an abomination. Today, on Marvin's behalf, I am asking for your help.
Ep. 509 - Tomorrow we are launching a campaign to save a Black man's life
I need your help, but most of all, he's going to need your help. And together we can do some of the most important work of our lives.
Ep. 508 - Now that they have power, will the Democrats do right by us?
While I'm on the road this week, the staff at The North Star will be playing re-run episodes of The Breakdown as well as some of our favorite episodes from some of our other podcast series. Thanks for tuning in!
Democrats narrowly control the House, Senate, and Presidency - the real question I have now is this - what will they do with it? Because it already looks like Republicans are going to play hardball as usual. Will Democrats fold and get nothing done, or will they muster up the moral courage to fight for real meaningful change? Most of my close friends think that Democrats will squander this moment. Call me foolish, but I still have some hope.
Giving people the information they need. Thank you
