A Braver Way Episode 12

Episode 12: How to Citizen

Is it the facts that get in the way in our politics, or our stories? Baratunde Thurston is a renowned comedian, activist, and PBS host who knows a lot about how the stories we tell about ourselves can either unlock our civic power… or make us forget we even have it. We’ll zoom in on two unforgettable times Baratunde crossed big divides and what those clashes can teach us, and we’ll hear his four pillars of “how to citizen” — as a verb, not a noun — to help us wield that power daily. Then Monica and April close us out with a clash of their own, unleashing their own stories about citizenship to see where their different politics lead them to think differently about the concept and the many issues that surround it.

    Another episode of our conservative friends enjoying the sound of their own voices and offering up a shallow, self-congratulatory dive. De Santos is not some policy genius and dynamic leader. He won by a smaller margin than Fl leans to the right. I dread to think about how some facile, power-mad Republican would have done in the face of Ukraine, COVID, and GLOBAL inflation – Biden doesn’t control inflation. The US is doing better than it’s peers thanks to Biden’s team and policy. And before you hold up Florida as some sort of utopia – let’s wait for the insurance fall out when all this ocean front property is under water every 5 years…Florida is also another state that is heavily subsidized by the Federal government. The very week after the Martha’s Vinyard stunt, the pinocchio known as de Santos, suddenly found his manners and was gracious enough to accept Biden’s unconditional support for Fl affected by the disaster. Mrs. ForcedBirth, so delighted with her unethically-constituted, right-wing supreme court, no mention of Ginny Thomas. What are your “conservative values,” pray tell? Do you think liberals can’t be good parents? You need to check your head and be specific about your dog whistles. Consider me tired of being the adult in the room. I’m glad that Dems are going to finally give R’s a dose of their own medicine and launch investigations into these two-bit hucksters from the back of nowhere that are praying on their ignorant constituents and tearing our country apart.
