Episode notes

Well, the first debate happened, and that was a mess! Well good thing Amanda E (she/her)  is here, a former professional canvasser, current committed campaign volunteer, and Amand’s going to help us navigate through the ramblings of Britney Spears. Oh yeah, first it’s a pit stop to #FreeBritney as two former diehards of the Britney Army, Amanda & James, are still concerned. Then we get to the shit storm garage fire that was the first Presidential debate and we unpack our raw feelings, thoughts, takeaways… fears… a lot of those… but luckily Amanda is going to turn our fears into action with things that we can do to get involved this election cycle with some tips to help you navigate your fears about text/phone banking, and why we don’t have any other option: we each have to step it up at a level that’s right for us! You’ll definitely be feeling the fire and empowered. Then a quick History Korner in honor of Hispanic heritage month Carmelita Torres the LatinX Rosa Parks, and where the Nazis got their idea for fumigating human beings in “gasoline baths”, here’s a hint: it’s the US.
