Welcome to “The Stakes,” our political-ish podcast where even though the World Series is over, we are, politically speaking, still biting our nails at the bottom of the ninth. Coming up:
Part 1: Producer James T. Green spends an evening with Assata’s Daughters, an abolitionist group formed to address a shortage of programming and community for young black women in Chicago.
Part 2: MTV style editor Haley Mlotek speaks with filmmaker and activist Brett Story about her new movie, The Prison in Twelve Landscapes.
Part 3: Producer Mukta Mohan interviews Nadya Tolokonnikova, founding member of Pussy Riot, about her latest music video, “Make America Great Again,” which imagines a dystopia in which ... Donald Trump is president of the United States.
Part 4: MTV political reporter Marcus Ellsworth shares his election-night poem, “Over My Shoulder.”
