In 2018, an impressive third of Americans reported spending two hours or more per day on political activity. But, four out of five of those people reported that none of that time was spent on real political work – rather, we feel engaged and satisfied when we consume political news, engage on social media, and complain with friends and family. In short, what many of us are doing is political hobbyism – not making real change. Our guest, Eitan Hersh, tells the stories of several normal-people-turned-activists and how they became involved in their communities – approaching change on a local level and advocating for political candidates in face-to-face interactions.
