The Resistance to President Trump has fueled a wave of progressive political activism that reaches far beyond the political arena, and average Americans—young people in particular—who otherwise considered themselves apolitical are now hyper-engaged in political discourse for the first time. What does it mean to be “woke”? And are people actually becoming more “woke” or just doubling down on their long-held beliefs? What impact have Trump’s tweets, “fake news”, and the 24-hour news cycle had on the national consciousness? Election outcomes? We’ll talk to my wife, SiriusXM Progress host and “Warrior Princess of the Resistance”, about the importance of getting and staying woke, and what young people in particular can do to transform politics.
