On The Next Move, we’re talking about building the future we want out of this moment of darkness. Our host, George Goehl is one of the nation’s leading progressive organizers. Since COVID-19 hit, George found there was no shortage of people who could tell him just how screwed we are. But he wanted to talk with people focused on solutions and action. Across the eight-episode series, George Goehl will interview eight experts on transforming our social contract to build the future we want. This podcast will describe the society we want to build out of the wreckage -- and map out how we’ll build it together.
What role can our government play in making our lives better? And what role can we play in our government? Heather McGhee, Distinguished Senior Fellow and former President of Demos, is just the person to answer these questions. In this episode, George talks to Heather about building on our gut-level interconnectivity towards a more inclusive future, and about what learnings they have from being on the frontlines of the 2008 financial crisis and how they are applying those learnings today.
Heather McGhee is Distinguished Senior Fellow at Demos. She is author of the forthcoming book, The Sum of Us: What Racism Costs Everyone and How We Can Prosper Together. You can find her on Twitter: @hmcghee
