What is America? What is American? Is the Muslim Ban or the bombs we drop or the fear and hate around immigration really un-American?

Dec 30, 2016

It's been a full year of Act Out episodes and it would be a shame to shift into next year without a look back – not just because we're proud of the work we've done but because the powerful activists, artists and movements that we've hosted are and will be an inspiration moving into next year – a raised fist in the face of fascisma fuck you to the powers that be, saying we, the people, are not going to be passive.

A massive display of what we are capable of – the creative ideas, the connections made, the actions we take – ALL of this – in the name of justice, peace – and people and planet over profit.

So, without further ado, here is a look back – for the fight ahead.

Dec 23, 2016

This week:

in a special episode, I've got some questions:

What makes a news outlet a Russian propaganda site?

Did the Russians actually hack or leak or in any other way tamper with our elections?

How safe and fair are our elections and could voting machines be used for something more fun – like playing PacMan?

And finally, journalist Mnar Muhawesh joins us to talk real – vs. fake - news.

A run down on the fucked politics of Texas and why they matter to you.

Next up, an army veteran walks us through her time at Standing Rock followed by

a few pipelines that AREN'T DAPL that YOU could be fighting – possibly even in your own backyard.

And finally, Hedges with a ray of hope through the clouds of depressive realism.

This week:

In a special episode, let's talk education – the power of which is so strong, governments will and do withhold it from their own people as a twisted but very efficient form of oppression.

As our access to publicly funded, quality education in this country continues to falter, let's take a look at a group of people barred from knowledge, their reaction and thousands of miles away, a creative response in solidarity, in power - to raise awareness, to educate.

And finally, from the front lines, yet ANOTHER reminder and source of inspiration to get informed, get engaged and rise up.

This week - a special episode:

Bushra al-Fusail is a Yemeni-American who lived under the ongoing airstrikes in Yemen for months before coming, ironically, to the country that makes the destruction of hers possible.

Far from tucking herself away, she has been working tirelessly both on the streets and in the halls of Congress to raise awareness of the ongoing conflict in Yemen and perhaps most importantly, of the US role in the death and destruction in her home country.

In this special episode, she outlines the reality of war, the backstory of Saudi’s involvement in Yemen, the US role in the war and how we, the people of the US can #RememberYemen and push to end this horrific war

But first, I am, I have.
