Yes, that’s right, In The Thick has won a major podcast award! Awarded by Ad Week, a weekly American advertising trade publication, this award cements In The Thick in the politics podcast world, and sets it apart from the homogenous voices in mainstream media, one that fails to reflect the voices of a changing America….
Change Will Come
Julio is joined by guest co-host Jamilah King. They talk with ITT All-Stars Andrea González-Ramírez, senior writer at GEN by Medium, and Dr. Christina Greer, associate professor of political science at Fordham University and co-host of the podcast FAQ NYC, on the Biden-Harris transition, their upcoming administration's policies, and Puerto Rico’s election results. They also discuss the latest on the coronavirus pandemic and the Black Lives Matter movement.
ITT Staff Picks:
- “By pushing for Puerto Rican statehood to benefit themselves, mainland liberals are making Puerto Rico a political pawn once again.” In his latest for NBC News, Julio Ricardo-Varela explains why white liberals must let the people of Puerto Rico decide on statehood.
- “The most precious resource the U.S. health-care system has in the struggle against COVID-19 isn’t some miracle drug. It’s the expertise of its health-care workers—and they are exhausted.” Ed Yong writes about how the third pandemic surge is pushing health-care workers to the limit for The Atlantic.
- “Organizations that have worked relentlessly for months to turn out the vote for Biden did not even take a weekend off to celebrate. Instead, they immediately unveiled detailed plans outlining all the executive actions a Biden-Harris administration could take within its first 100 days: from immediate student debt relief, to generous “people’s bailouts” as part of its Covid-19 response, to the highly detailed “Frontlines Climate Justice Executive Action Platform,” backed by a coalition of powerful groups and published by the think tank Demos.” writes Naomi Klein for The Intercept.
