Enhanced audio: Netroots Radio After Show — Voting, Citizen Advocacy, & a Way Forward (11/04/15)

Overview:

We covered a fair amount today! We talked disappointing midterm results — as per usual as the right-wing turns people out and gears up their fear machine with well-funded precision. I also gave some much-deserved love to Margaret Cho who tweeted about her past as a sex worker and why she is the literal opposite of ashamed about it. Then I tied sex worker rights to abortion rights — a very short leap and both are fundamentally about bodily autonomy and economic justice/independence.
