Show Notes

I attended a summit called "Inaugurate the Resistance" which was hosted by the Progressive Independent Party. It was held at a night club called the Kabin Lounge in Washington D.C. on January 22nd, 2017. The summit featured panel discussions and a chance to meet various representatives of progressive organizations with the hope of those relationships eventually turning into a unified coalition ready for real electoral fights.


I had spent the last month trading emails and phone calls with the media liaisons at the Green Party to try and secure an interview with Dr. Stein before I flew out to Washington, but I never got confirmation. I knew she was going to speak at the event on the panel discussing electoral strategy, so I took the opportunity to speak to her and she agreed to sit down with us for the project. In 2016, both corporate candidates were historically disliked by the voters, which elevated third parties for a minute and ended up giving Dr. Stein a national platform. I thought her experience in 2016 could provide some insight into how the system keeps opposition voices on the fringe and away from the cameras.
