    Let's Stay on the Path to Justice with Senator Nina Turner

    SNT returns with a post-election solo episode full of reflective golden nuggets for you -- and for herself! Full of heart and, yes, sorrow and disdain, Senator Turner questions what brought about the election outcome and gives thanks to the thousands of supporters who made her race competitive. While taking the bitter with the sweet, SNT implores us to remain vigilant; reminds us that the journey does not end with a loss as there is still opportunity and NEED to continue on this path to justice. Hello Somebody!

More than a history review, this mind-blowing session takes on wealth, health, safety, morality and how our “bastard” country has murdered its way to exactly where we are right now. Be prepared to be schooled with helpful facts to keep your foot on the gas toward continued organizing, motivating and activating. Hello Somebody.

    Let's Be Political Poets with Eddie S. Glaude, Jr.

    Let's Be Political Poets with Eddie S. Glaude, Jr.

    Rather than “run out the room screamin’”, SNT and Eddie S. Glaude, Jr., American Academic and Princeton African American Studies Chair, purposefully intellectualize about the gutted voting rights act, white supremacy and the value gap, the dire need for critical thinking, and how the current political moment attacks imagination. James Baldwin quotes fly in this episode as these two urgently implore us to fight back and become political poets – right now, in real time, or else. Hello Somebody!

Senator Turner is my president.

I cannot wait to see what neoliberal corporate democrats will try if you are our 2024 progressive pick for president. They can’t handle it! The torch is yours now! We are with you all the way.
