Resistbot Live discusses issues faced by everyday Americans that you do not hear from on the network news shows. We aim to elevate voices without a large platform, focusing on their stories and not the political theater. The podcast is the audio feed from the live show that streams Sundays at 1 pm Eastern on YouTube, Twitch, Facebook, and Twitter. We respond to your questions and comments live, so please join us if you like the show! Resistbot Live is brought to you by the same volunteers behind the Resistbot (https://resist.bot) chatbot that's driven over 30 million pieces of correspondence to elected officials since 2017. If you haven't given it a try, pull out your phone and text the word "resist" to the number 50409 to get started. You can text officials from your Mayor to the President, check your voter registration, start your own campaigns, and much more!

Saul's Life ,

One of my favorite shows!

Let’s put it this way, I get mad at myself when I don’t catch the live episode… informative, funny and, somehow feel good all at the same time. Keep up the great work!

Helpful Distillation of the Issues

So many competing issues out there, but this team brings key players to share first hand knowledge and experience about current topics. This podcast curates what we need to know, when we need to know it - and what your average citizen can do to engage with the issue.

Focused on YOU and YOUR NEIGHBORS

This is the way grownups need to talk about policy and issues. Excellent work.
