From the founders of Pantsuit Nation, the Facebook group that brought together millions of passionate and engaged people in the final weeks of the 2016 election, This Pod is Your Pod is a weekly podcast that connects personal narrative to political action. With stories that will move and inspire you, we focus on the people at the heart of policy decisions and talk about resources to effectively resist the current administration and promote progressive change in American politics.
||CleanIt’s not a matter of getting in the back of the line. There is no line.||This week on the pod, we speak with Pantsuit Nation member Cheska Perez about the importance of DACA and defending the rights of all immigrant families. We also have our weekly Cat Call to Action and award the Golden Pantsuit to our shero this week, Amy McGrath, who was kind enough to answer our phone call and tell us what keeps her grounded as a newly famous candidate for congress in Kentucky.

||CleanYou have to sweep around your own front door||We are very lucky this week to talk to Representative Gwen Moore from Wisconsin (a great-grandmother!) about the alarming rate of infant mortality in the US, and what can be done to address it. She tells us about the people who have inspired her to a life of service, and how she plans to tackle infant mortality as a congresswoman and community member. We also talk about our self care practices (hint: cake and youtube), and do a bit of rocking out. Join the conversation at pantsuitnation.org/blog!||8/3/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanWe will not be shushed||This week we look back at Pantsuit Nation’s origin story, talk with Lola Omolola who created (another!) million-member Facebook Group called Female IN (FIN) which empowers women to tell their stories, and try to find some productive outlets to channel our rage and disbelief at what’s happening in Washington right now.

||CleanFirst comes the outrage. Then comes the action.||In our first episode, we speak with two incredible women who channeled their outrage at the result of the 2016 election into positive, powerful action. Kristy Klein Davis, a Pantsuit Nation member from Missouri, tells us about a shocking undercurrent of bigotry in her community that she discovered as a candidate for her local school board. We also talk with Amanda Litman, a co-founder of Run for Something, about the incredible surge of new candidates she is seeing step up for office nationwide and how her organization is empowering them. Finally, we make our first “Cat Call,” pose a critical question about Oprah and pantsuits, and talk about how our members can take action this week.||7/20/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
