In this week’s episode, co-host Ryan Coonerty speaks with Representative Nicole Clowney, who is working hard to address gun violence, protect reproductive rights, and support firefighters and teachers in the overwhelmingly Republican state of Arkansas. Clowney discusses her unusual journey to the legislature, offering broader insights on political theory and societal change drawn from her studies in the Classics. She gives us an optimistic view of what it’s like to work in a Democratic superminority, while predicting a centrist swing in her home state in the coming years. The conversation also touches on how to better confront the opioid crisis, and the new terrain for fighting for reproductive rights in the wake of Arkansas's recent abortion ban. Tune in to learn more about how Representative Clowney is working across the aisle to enact change.
