This is a podcast series about emotions, politics, and action. Truth is, I was depressed before the election. In the aftermath, I'm afraid but also motivated. I'm talking to people about how they feel and what they want to do based on those feelings. These are short conversations with activists, organizers, and thinkers around the country. A product of the Alternative Historian. More information at www.alternativehistorian.com.
