Reprise: Making Empathy Go Viral with Heather McGhee

Released Tuesday, 3rd August 2021
Good episode? Give it some love!
When Heather McGhee isn’t fighting for justice, writing, teaching, and raising her son, she’s daydreaming about biscuits (butter only, please). She tells Alicia and Ai-jen how she got involved with economic policy advocacy, what she learned about the intersection of racism and inequality after the 2008 financial crisis, and how becoming a parent made her work even more urgent. Plus: What really happened after Heather’s viral TV moment with Gary in North Carolina.
This is a re-release of an episode from January 2020.

Sunstorm is a project of the NDWA, in collaboration with Participant Media.
