People For the American Way’s podcast, “The Progressive Happy Hour,” is all about talking politics with pop culture, organizing with attitude, and the Constitution with a couple of cocktails. Every week hosts Christin “Cici” Battle, director of PFAW’s Young People For Action, and Diallo Brooks, PFAW’s senior director of outreach and public engagement, discuss the big stories of the day and strategize about ways to create the America we want.
