The Pantsuit Nation team is thrilled to announce This Pod is Your Pod, a weekly podcast that connects personal narrative to political action. With stories that will engage and inspire, the podcast (hosted by Pantsuit Nation cofounders Libby Chamberlain and Cortney Tunis) will focus on the people at the heart of policy decisions and discuss resources to effectively promote progressive change in American politics. It will be available to subscribe and listen to on-demand through Apple Podcasts, Google Play, Spotify, Stitcher, and TuneIn.
Each episode will feature personal stories from a diverse range of guests and weekly calls to action that will move our community to greater collective impact. The podcast is a natural extension of Pantsuit Nation, where for the past nine months people from all over the world have connected over shared values, a commitment to a more equitable and just society, and the stories that knit us all together. Now members (and those who may not be on Facebook!) will have the opportunity to hear the voices we so enthusiastically read and support in our Facebook group. In addition to furthering the mission of Pantsuit Nation via storytelling-as-activism content, revenue generated from ads on the podcast (which will be available to listeners for free) will go to the incredible team that is helping us produce and distribute this podcast and to Pantsuit Nation Foundation, the nonprofit that supports our group and mission.
The podcast provides an incredible platform for conversation, something that can be challenging on social media. So much of what makes Pantsuit Nation special is the dialogue among members that occurs in the comments and offline, and the podcast puts those conversations front and center. Guests will be invited to speak plainly about how policies affect their daily lives, with the ultimate goal of making sure our government (in the US and beyond) reflects the values of inclusion and equality.
The podcast will be available to download and listen to on-demand beginning this Thursday, July 20. Subscribe to get episodes automatically delivered to you each week. We're particularly excited to be working with DGital Media, a leading creator and distributor of podcasts with programming partners that include Crooked Media, Recode, Vox Media, The Verge, and Vanity Fair, among many others.
