Who Has The Power

We’ve been feeling a lot of anxiety lately, so we decided to get real with y’all in this episode. Hosts Owen and Cassie talk about the fear we’ve been experiencing during this tumultuous time and how that anxiety relates to our overall political theory. We cover some tricky topics, but we hope you’ll hear the nuance of our worldview and understand that we are all in this fight together. There’s a lot to be anxious about but we still have so much hope for a better world. Please note that the views expressed in this episode are the views of the hosts and do not necessarily reflect the views of Sunrise Movement or The Tennessee Holler.
