District 34 Podcast
About This Show
Hosted by Tina-Desiree Berg, MA in Philosophy. The District 34 Podcast builds on the idea that local action creates national results. From the inside of the Democratic party to the forces pushing it left, the 34th Congressional District of California has developed into a hot bed of advocacy and an incubator of new political voices. We tell the stories of activists on the ground. This is the podcast for those looking to get inspired, get involved, and get informed about progressive politics. It could get messy in here.
