The Listen, Organize, Act podcast focuses on the history and contemporary practice of community organizing and democratic politics. Alongside this specific focus are two others: the first is to explore how organizing connects democracy and religion, particularly at a local, congregational level; the second is to examine how organizing embodies a distinctive vision and practice of democratic politics. The name of the podcast reflects these concerns, particularly the last one. Through a series ...

This year the U.S. will go through its decennial redistricting process, which is resurfacing our national conversation around gerrymandering.

In his book, "Why Cities Lose", Rodden illustrates…

Is there anything more boring than land-use regulation? Not quite. As our guest today argues, these seemingly banal policies could be causing modern-day segregation.

We’re constantly told that we’re trapped in media “echo chambers”, that our media diets mirror our political leanings. But what do the data say? Is it possible that a majority of us have a much more moderate media diet than we assume? A new paper by Andrew Guess, Assistant Professor of Politics at Princeton, provides a completely unique data set th…
 
This episode discusses power, defined simply as the ability to act.

In this episode I examine the second key tool organizing uses for listening, building relationships, and effecting change: the house meeting.

Along…

When was the last time you voted split-ticket in an election? It may not be surprising to hear that our elections have become increasingly nationalized in the last few decades.

As a second attempt at the impeachment of Donald Trump leads off, we look at opening arguments and new information about January’s siege on the Capitol.

At the top of the list at number one w…
