On Pod Save the People, organizer and activist DeRay Mckesson explores news, culture, social justice, and politics with fellow activists Brittany Packnett Cunningham and Sam Sinyangwe, and writer Clint Smith. They offer a unique take on the news, with a special focus on overlooked stories and topics that often impact people of color.
There’s also a weekly one-on-one interview with DeRay and special guests, from singer/songwriter John Legend to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. The experts, influencers, and diverse local and national leaders who come on the show go deep on social, political, and cultural issues. New episodes every Tuesday.
Deray, Brittany, Clint, and Sam discuss Puerto Rico's indefinitely delayed financial relief, environmental effects of urban living, genetic mutations worth testing for, and the LAPD's use of undue force against the homeless.
Deray, Brittany, Clint, and Sam discuss the effect of incarcerated family members on children, the transgender Supreme Court battle, Baltimore's mass sweep of illegal convictions, and the trap-release-trap process of avoiding medical bills for inmates.
