In this episode, we talk to Em, an Alaskan Native who is now living and working in Jackson, Wyoming. We talk about growing up in Alaska, about cheerleading and boyfriends. We talk about all the jobs Em has had, from serving customers at a Cold Stone creamery to working in the Alaskan mines. And we talk about her move to Wyoming and getting more involved in leftist politics, which ultimately led to her joining the Wyoming Red Star Coalition.

In These Times is funded entirely by readers like you, but through the first half of 2021, reader donations are down 20% compared to last year. If that continues, it could spell real trouble for In These Times. We’re running a short fundraising drive (from now until July 31) to get things back on track. Will you chip in?
