It's A Sunday Podcast Now

The Introverted Activist_New Art.jpg

Dry Humor, News, Politics

This week I talk about Trump being named Individual 1 in the Mueller investigation, the human cost of hate, immigration, violence against trans women of color, and the continued efforts of the GOP to undermine the will of the people in states like Michigan, and in overwhelmingly popular policies, like the ACA.

Trigger warning, this episode includes some difficult topics, including covering some upsetting news items that deal with children, and also violence against the transgender community, and sexual violence. 

All opinions expressed by me in The Introverted Activist are my own, and do not represent the views of anyone else, or any employer, company, or entity.
