Great progressive tech podcast ,

Must-listen for progressive changemakers

All-around excellent podcast that surveys a broad swath of the progressive movement, going in depth on practitioners' backgrounds and revealing some interesting details about the finer points of all kinds of different programs. As a progressive tech enthusiast I particularly enjoy the episodes that dive into all of the apps that have come to market in recent years. The host, with a very storied history in this sector, approaches it with tremendous insight and curiosity. If you are working in the progressive movement, or want to, you simply must subscribe!

One of the best podcasts

I don’t remember how I found this podcast, but I’m glad I did. It gives me ideas, a broader view, and I get insight into all sides of an issue. Thanks!

So good, so thoughtful

This is the polar opposite of the quick sound bites that politics is known for. Nathaniel takes the time to really get to know people and their story. So good.
