2020 Election Special: Join the Mother Jones Podcast for a LIVE Episode

Exactly one week before the most important election of our lifetimes, the Mother Jones Podcast team did something it has never done before: A live show.

Join host Jamilah King for this special livestreamed taping of the award-winning weekly podcast, featuring a cast of Mother Jones specialists telling you exactly what you need to know about this final sprint: the tide of disinformation, threats to your voting rights, what we’re seeing on the ground in battleground states, and the next phase in the fight for America’s future.

With democracy on the line, this is your chance to join the Mother Jones virtual newsroom. We’re almost there. It’s now or never.

This livestream was taped Tuesday, October 27, 2020, at 4 p.m. E.S.T. Watch on repeat above.

Guests: Nathalie Baptiste, Ari Berman, Ali Breland, David Corn, Fernanda Echavarri, Pema Levy, Tim Murphy, and Kara Voght.

REAL QUICK, REAL URGENT

Minority rule, corruption, disinformation, attacks on those who dare tell the truth: There is a direct line from what's happening in Russia and Ukraine to what's happening here at home. And that's what MoJo's Monika Bauerlein writes about in "Their Fight Is Our Fight" to unpack the information war we find ourselves in and share a few examples to show why the power of independent, reader-supported journalism is such a threat to authoritarians.

Corrupt leaders the world over can (and will) try to shut down the truth, but when the truth has millions of people on its side, you can't keep it down for good. And there's no more powerful or urgent argument for your support of Mother Jones' journalism right now than that. We need to raise about $450,000 to hit our online fundraising budget in these next few months, so please read more from Monika and pitch in if you can.
