The Activist Podcast is a new program hosted by Mike Ratner, in partnership with the Podcast Channel, that brings together experts, influencers, and nonprofits to explore the complexities of various Social Issues and embark on a collective journey towards effective allyship through comprehensive conversations.
KNOW YOUR CAUSE
An activist is a person who engages in activism—the practice of taking direct action to achieve political or social goals. An activist may support a particular cause (or range of causes) or oppose it. In any case, an activist tries to achieve such goals through direct (and continued) actions, such as protests, lawsuits, lobbying, petitions, and strikes. The interviews on our podcast are with leaders who are taking actions consistently—that they are consistently concerned and engaged in these pursuits.
