Friends,I’m so happy to welcome my friend, journalist and documentarian Abby Martin back on the show. We have a very different talk than Abby is usually asked to have: instead of talking about what’s wrong with the world, we talk about why we want to change it. The answer we keep coming back to is love.

I start this show talking about my stepfather, who I found out – just hours after recording with Abby – had died the night before.
