Minnesota state representative Erin Maye Quade joins us to discuss season 3, episode 5 “Media Blitz”. We talk about the benefits and pitfalls of using social media as an elected official, why Erin’s background as a retail employee now benefits her as a public servant, and why this episode marks a turning point, not just for the season, but for the entire series. Plus, Erin demonstrates her powers of persuasion by pitching us to attend next year’s Minnesota State Fair! We also add trailblazing journalist and anti-lynching advocate Ida B. Wells-Barnett to the Wall of Inspirational Women.
Content note: Our Wall of Inspirational Women segment describes a lynching. The language we use is not overly graphic or violent, but the description may still be upsetting to listeners.
