In brief: The 4th of July holiday weekend seemed the perfect time to do a democracy health check! Jody Allard — whose words you should read all over the internet — discusses her life and how she and her family would be affected by whatever form healthcare repeal/destruction takes. In the second half, Andrea Grimes is back on the show to talk about ballot box apathy, getting involved person-to-person in your community as resistance work that pushes back on those feelings of powerlessness, and her new must-listen project Traitor Radio.
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 at PAYPAL.me/KatieSpeak. Thank you!
