‘The Stakes’: Get Up, Stand Up

Another week, another (sort of) political podcast

Welcome to The Stakes, the soothing cup of tea for your aggravated, scratchy throat that you may have gotten from yelling at whatever news item of the week made you personally angry this week. Coming up on the show today:

Part 1: Jamil Smith talks to Symone Sanders, former press secretary for Bernie Sanders (no relation), about her voter mobilization efforts targeted at black millennials, #WeVote.

Part 2: Doreen St. Félix gets an insider’s view of the prison strikes taking place across the country.

Part 3: Marcus Ellsworth talks to Kandi Mossett of the Indigenous Environmental Network about the pipeline in North Dakota that could destroy sacred Native American sites and contaminate local water sources.
