In brief: “My take” is new and brought to you from St. Louis at Netroots Nation! I was there presenting on Transcribe Online, a social justice tech company I co-founded this year. (Still a work in progress!) Since I was traveling, I repackaged two interviews that provide a much needed balance to the RNC media cycle: Cliff Schecter explaining what the Second Amendment actually means and Sarah Jaffe on the culture of work and when we can finally stop working!
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!
