In brief: Badass labor journalist Sarah Jaffe summed up this entire show during our interview: “The revolution will not be funded.” I talked with her and “Hand to Mouth” author Linda Tirado about the system that rules us, what life is like for far too many of us, and some thoughts on how we change it.
Note: This show is available to stream and download for free so it can be accessible for everyone. If you’re able, consider becoming a supporter for as little as $1/month at PATREON or making a one-time donation through PAYPAL. Thank you!
This show is so good, y’all. I’m finally getting pretty alright on the flip side of the mic asking the questions and I continue to be amazed at how lucky I am that brilliant, engaging people are willing to give me some of their valuable time.
I agonized over what to cut out of my chat with Sarah Jaffe; stay tuned for the upcoming bonus feed (subscribe to my Patreon page for as little as $1/month to be first in line for access). I only managed not to go over time with Linda Tirado because she is the new queen of segues and well-timed optimistic ending notes. You won’t want to miss a minute of these interviews.
