Wednesdays 5.00- 6:00pm

Hosted by: Arthur Schwartz


The show features activists, with a focus on people looking to take the lesson of the Bernie Sanders campaign and apply that grassroots activism to fights around election reform, health care, police misconduct, environmental destruction, education, inequality, student debt, and good-paying jobs, both by organizing around issues and by electing progressives to office.

The show includes interviews and coverage of important events in the NYC area.
