‘The Stakes’: Raw Hearts

Another week, another (allegedly) political podcast

Welcome to “The Stakes,” our sort-of political podcast. Coming up on the show today:

Part 1: Ana Marie Cox speaks with Ron Honberg, senior policy advisor at the National Alliance on Mental Illness, about Hillary Clinton’s new platform dedicated to mental health reform.

Part 2: Jamil Smith talks to Alicia Garza, cofounder of Black Lives Matter, about a new project dedicated to putting the voices of women of color on the agenda this election year.

Part 3: Mukta Mohan interviews a terror expert on the psychology of the false security alarms that threw JFK and LAX airports into panics this summer.

Part 4: Marcus Ellsworth presents a poem about the contradictory nature of faith and its ability to breed both hate and compassion.
