EXCLUSIVE Interview with Presidential Candidate Marianne Williamson
Episode 114 Sneak Peek
Our very first KK&F guest. A powerful advocate for peace and justice, both in the 2020 presidential election and beyond. Marianne Williamson truly needs no introduction — but as she’s announced a second presidential run in 2024, the first person in the field to challenge Joe Biden as of yet, we’re bringing Marianne back on the show for a wide-ranging discussion of what will be new about her 2024 campaign, what issues are at the front of her mind as a presidential candidate, what she learned from the last round, and, of course, how she plans to win.
Universal healthcare, free child care, paid family leave, and other key progressive policy planks will be at the heart of her 2024 campaign, according to the Washington Post. We’re interested to hear how her ideas on social welfare programs, civil and economic rights, and the core values of love and justice she represented in her 2020 campaign have evolved in the wake of a global pandemic, the 2020 George Floyd protests, new energy in the labor movement, and an incrementalism Biden admin. There’s much to discuss with the one and only Marianne Williamson, and that discussion is taking place on this week’s episode of KK&F — so you’re in the right place!
Because of Marianne’s Saturday announcement, our posting schedule will be a bit different this week. Paying subscribers can watch this episode as a video when it’s released this Sunday. We’ll be releasing the audio shortly afterward on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Pandora, and your other favorite streaming platforms. Thanks for tuning in!
Please ask MW why she’s not calling for negotiations in the Ukraine crisis and if she realizes enthusiasm for her candidacy is already dribbling away among leftists who hoped she would be a strong antiwar voice.
If Marianne Williamson is going to talk about healthcare, PLEASE ask her why she did nothing publicly to fight for #Calcare in California, where she lived the vast majority of her adult life, made a name for herself and ran for congress. She could have really made a difference to effort but she also could hae taken the opportunity to position herself as a true leader on the issue. When Gavin Newsom was vulnerable due to the recall, he, along with the super-majority Democratic legislature killed it during the pandemic. She had the opportunity to position herself as the voice of opposition to an utterly corrupt political class in California that calls itself progressive yet just like Democrats at the national level, sit on their hands and claim to be helpless even though Newsom promised universal, single payer during his first run. She could have used it as a jumping off platform as a fighter for what the people want while also shutting down talk of Newsom running by making it known throughout the country just how corrupt he is and could have done what none of the elected officials in California, including the so-called couple of progressive members of the congressional delegation, did - lend true leadership and a well-known presence to the cause.
