I'm the Host of The Signal, a New Podcast by the Bucks County Beacon
The First Episode: Immigrant Solidarity - From Bucks County to the Border with Sue-Ann DiVito. Feb. 15 I'll speak with Maurice Cunningham about the "Merchants of Deception" in the "School Board Wars."
Sue-Ann DiVito is a Bucks County mother, grandmother, and political activist. Her “witnessing” has included three trips to the border to see first hand the humanitarian crises exacerbated by policy failures, of Republican and Democratic Administrations alike. She most recently returned from a solidarity delegation sponsored by Witness at the Border called the “Journey for Justice: A Border Pilgrimage.”
The Signal is a podcast by The Bucks County Beacon. Twice a month we will use this space to shine a light on the right-wing extremist currents streaming though Bucks County and beyond. We will talk to guests who will help listeners navigate these perilous political waters by providing insight, analysis, and organizing solutions so that we can steer the community toward calmer, saner progressive routes.
