Expert Extra #13: Jennifer O’Mara, Candidate for Pennsylvania State Rep District 165

November 17, 2017

This week's Expert Extra features Jennifer O'Mara, candidate for Pennsylvania State Representative (District 165). Jen was one of many women around the country who heard the activist call of the Women's March and responded by deciding to run for office. Colleen interviews Jen and Jen's husband, Brad, by phone, and they dig deep into why Jen decided to run, how Brad is helping her, and the latest updates on her campaign. Inside 254 will check in with Jen several more times as the 2018 campaign heats up. Learn how you can help women candidates in your area, and how you can help Jen's effort to Flip the 165th in Pennsylvania!

Ep 24 Growth

November 10, 2017

In Episode 24, we discuss the idea of growth and speculate about what might happen if we focused less on economic and population (growth) and more on quality over quantity, time, satisfaction, and knowledge (growth). In the Trumpster Fire, we discuss Trump weeds (tweets). Our newest segment, Fierce Woman Warrior, is a brief profile on an amazing woman who is actively working to change her community. Our first Fierce Woman Warrior is Amy McGrath. Our Media Minute encourages you to read Hillary Clinton's book What Happened, and our Activist Action asks you to grow your knowledge about Native peoples past and present by exploring the NMAI's new Native Knowledge 360 project.
