Episode 38 Audio: Faiz Shakir


This week, we’re joined by Faiz Shakir as we dive into the left pressures on the Biden administration, the challenges and rewards of creating independent media, the future of the reconciliation package, and much more.

After the Bernie campaign, Faiz has shifted to independent media work, founding More Perfect Union — which provides coverage of the labor movement, from the unionization effort in Bessemer to the current strike among Nabisco workers. He tells us about his experiences sharing working-class stories that have been excluded from mainstream coverage and bringing these critical issues to light. It’s a conversation we think you’ll enjoy.

Audio of this conversation is available on Substack, Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Pandora, and more.
