This week, my guests and I talked about whistleblowing in the tech industry, how ecofascism happens, and the second Trump impeachment trial. Ifeoma Ozoma (pictured above), founder of Earthseed, talked about the discrimination she says she experienced as a Black woman working at Pinterest, and what she’s doing to protect more whistleblowers through a new California amendment. Technology contributor Mutale Nkonde broke down why the way tech companies treat their employees impacts our everyday lives. And climate writer Mary Annaïse Heglar explained why how white supremacists engage with the climate crisis matters. Plus, Errin Haines of the 19th and Jess Morales Rocketto of the National Domestic Workers Alliance discussed the repercussions of former President Donald Trump’s second impeachment trial, pandemic relief from the Biden-Harris administration, and Stacey Abrams’ plan to strengthen our democracy.
And this week, I’m asking the Our Body Politic community: What is one thing you learned about yourself in the pandemic that makes you happy? To let us know what you think, click here, or call us at 929-353-7006 and leave a voicemail.
