Ep 32 Games, Guns, and Emma Gonzalez

March 30, 2018

Let's have some fun, shall we? In Episode 32, we play the Headline Game and let it all hang out. Half of this Table Talk could be an outtake, but we left it all in for your amusement because you need to laugh. The Trumpster Fire once again discusses Trump's incessant tweets - this time, tweets are becoming gun policy. Our newest segment, Fierce Woman Warrior, is a brief profile on an amazing woman who is actively working to change her community. Our Fierce Woman Warrior this episode is student activist Emma Gonzalez, survivor of the Parkland HS mass shooting in Florida in February and leader of the #enough #neveragain movement. Our Media Minute asks you to watch the HBO series Insecure. And finally, our Activist Action asks you to walkout with students on Arpil 20, call your state legislators, and vote for anti-NRA candidates in November.

Inside 254 Presents: A Collaborative Roundtable Discussion with Raging Chicken Out d’Coup Podast on Sexual Misconduct in PA Capitol; Believing Women; and How to Fight Inequity in our Power Structures

December 22, 2017

In this special end of 2017 episode, we share our very first collaborative podcast roundtable with our friends, Kevin Mahoney and Sean Kitchen, over at Raging Chicken Radio's Out d'Coup Podcast. Our passionate discussion covers recent allegations of sexual misconduct in Pennsylvania state government and the need to hold the PA Democratic Party accountable for its role in perpetuating a culture of repressive sexism. We also delve into inequitable power structures and why it is necessary to flip the script and start believing women who are speaking out about sexual harassment, sexual assault, and toxic sexist culture. We end our discussion on note of hope and a list of women candidates running for office in 2018 and what you can do to fight unbalanced power structures in your own life and networks.

Be sure to check out Raging Chicken's Out d'Coup podcast and consider donating to support their important, independent, progressive work in Pennsylvania. These structures don't change themselves, so we are all in this together!

September 15, 2017

In Episode 20, we discuss the latest changes that will impact working American families under Trump's Labor Secretary, Alexander Acosta, specifically, changes to the sharing economy, traditional manufacturing, and overtime rules.
