Civic Cocktail: Social Justice & Effective Activism

Glib, insightful, outspoken and funny - that's Lindy West, author, columnist at "The Guardian," and contributor to "This American Life." West opens up to host Joni Balter, revealing the influences that shaped her biting wit, her conviction and compassion. They discuss the personal, politics, body image and a much-publicized spat with her boss! Then we hone in on politics with state Democratic Party Chair Tina Podlodowski and Bill Bryant, former port commissioner who challenged Jay Inslee for governor. Each has an interesting take on the new activism in the age of Donald Trump, and some surprising comments on their respective political parties.
