Welcome to the Progressive Opinions of Color (POC) Podcast, a place to reimagine politics and economics with underrepresented voices. This podcast has a Progressive tilt and welcomes you whether you're new to politics and want to learn more what Progressivism is, or you're already a Bernie Bro. Nancy Wu, the host, is an Asian American woman, an economist, and a huge politics and policy nerd. The goal of this podcast is to engage the Asian American community and other POC and BIPOC voices in an industry that is so heavily represented by old white men. The POC Podcast will host conversations on the 2020 Presidential Election, Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, the coronavirus pandemic, the state of the economy, and other pressing topics in politics, economics, and culture, all through perspectives inclusive of the lived experiences of people of color.
