On this episode of the podcast, Nancy has a conversation with Susan Rogan, founder of the political action newsletter Rogan’s List. A self-proclaimed “retired grandmother in a recliner,” Susan is also an activist icon thanks to her newsletter that has been dropping into inboxes since two days after the 2016 election. Having spent her career as an academic librarian, Susan talks about how she puts her organizational and research skills to use in a new way with the newsletter. Susan and Nancy also talk about new opportunities in activism created by the pandemic, the joy she gets from helping people take action, and the most important action steps you should take right now. In these days filled with loud and strident voices, Susan’s midwestern civility and lack of ego make for a refreshing listen.
