The BGG Podcast - “Too Ambitious?” How the press covers women candidates

Host A’shanti Gholar speaks to Tina Tchen, president and CEO of TIME’S UP Now and the TIME’S UP Foundation, and Karen Finney, Democratic political consultant, and MSNBC political commentator. They discuss the record number of women running for office in 2020 and the challenges that come from biased media coverage.

In the BGG to Politics blog, A’shanti created a space for women of color to learn about the current state of women in politics, to support others breaking into the political sphere, and to celebrate incredible people changing the course of the country. A’shanti founded the blog in 2018 and teamed up with Wonder Media Network in 2019 to extend The BGG platform to audio.

The Brown Girls Guide to Politics is produced by Cinthia Pimentel.
