    • Politics

Amanda is joined by Symone Sanders, senior strategic advisor to Joe Biden and author of “No, You Shut Up: Speaking Truth to Power and Reclaiming America.” Sanders shares how she fell in love with politics and found her voice in the political apparatus that didn’t always want to make space for her. She describes experiences from the 2016 campaign trail, when she served as the youngest ever national press secretary for a major candidate, Bernie Sanders, and shares the ageism, sexism, and racism she encountered traveling the country. The longtime political operative explains why it’s crucial for people in power to have boundaries, and why she thinks party factions are united enough for a win in November. Finally, Sanders and whether she thinks America is finally having the uncomfortable conversations about race that could lead to real change.
