    #18 - Georgia Fort

    Georgia Fort is a two-time Emmy nominated journalist.  Her mission as a storyteller is to change the narrative by amplifying truth, citing diverse sources, and contextualizing social justice issues.  In this discussion we touched on some of Georgia's experiences in the field, journalistic methods, biases, strategies for the future, and more!  This was a prerecorded episode.

    #17 - Mark Mollineaux

    After reading "Progress and Poverty" (1879) by Henry George, I came across a whole world in which this man actually has his own "ism".  Georgism.  Like Karl Marx, his writings and ideas have been codified and theorized by so many after him.  Unlike Marx, Henry George is much less well-known today.  Enter, Mark Mollineaux!  Mark hosts "The Henry George Program", a podcast exclusively related to Georgism, and Georgist applications to modern issues such as housing, inequality, taxation, etc.  Does Georgism stick? Let's see!  This was a prerecorded episode.

    #16 - Odna Copty

    #16 - Odna Copty

    I actually connected with Odna Copty through a conversation on the ClubHouse app.  She is a Palestinian film student based in Tel Aviv, with time spent outside of the country as well.  It is a true blessing and privilege to be able to host a platform for so many people and stories from across the world; but this one surely brought with it many emotions.  It's hard to put into words, as Odna's narrative is one I will never experience.  Living in and out of the Zionist machine.  Her unique perspective crosses gender, religions, politics, and so many internal / external narratives of trauma.  All of these inevitably lead us to focus our conversation on modern Israel/Palestine politics.  This is her reality, and perhaps this reality can help us better understand Israeli apartheid.  Big picture, little, where the US fits in, etc!  This was a prerecorded episode.

    #15 - Lesley Williams

    Lesley Williams is a member of the coordinating committee for the Jewish Voice for Peace in Chicago, and a founding member of Tzedek Chicago, a non-Zionist, pro social justice synagogue in Chicago.  Lesley has twice visited the West Bank with the Center for Jewish Nonviolence for solidarity work and resistance with Palestinian and Israeli peace activists.  She has also spoken on Islamophobia, antisemitism, and Zionism at the American Studies Association conference, the MAS-ICNA conference, and the American Muslims for Palestine conference.  We initially connected through the ClubHouse app, and spent the podcast discussing the US education system, lobbying groups, zionist definitions, critical race theory, antisemitism, and much more in this mildly meandering chat!  This was a prerecorded episode.

    #14 - Tamara Johnson-Shealey

    Tamara Johnson-Shealey is a Georgia native whose journey into politics began in 2011 as  a concerned citizen/business owner.  She placed 6th in a field of 21 during the highly publicized 2020 special election in Georgia; running primarily on a platform of reparations for descendants of slavery.  It was a pleasure to have her on as our first of many guests in an ongoing series about this very important policy.  What once may have seemed "out of reach" now has a direct path to the halls of congress!  This was a prerecorded episode.

    #13 - Elvis Salic

    We are interviewing the guy behind the graphics in this casual interview!  Elvis Salic has been doing my designs for almost a decade now, on dozens of projects.  His quality, work ethic, and dedication really set him apart; and it has been a real pleasure collaborating with him all these years.  His path as a freelancer is one many aspire to in these days of "internet money" and independent contracting.  In this chat we went over some of Elvis' early motivations, learning through internet, securing gigs, finding a "niche", specific projects, and more!  This was a prerecorded episode.
