Announcing Our New Partnership with Working People Podcast
** FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE **
In These Times is thrilled to announce today’s launch of a partnership with Working People, a popular podcast about working-class lives in 21st-century America. Starting today, episodes of Working People will be distributed on InTheseTimes.com/WorkingPeople and via our weekly Working In These Times email newsletter, and we’ll be collaborating on content to ensure that critical working class stories get the platform and attention they deserve.
Hosted and created by Maximillian Alvarez, the podcast features interviews with workers from all around the United States, from all walks of life, including a gig worker in Silicon Valley, teachers in Los Angeles, autoworkers in Michigan, a cook on an Alaskan fishing boat, a grain farmer in North Dakota, sex workers in New York, and more. Through open, attentive and unscripted conversation, Maximillian talks to working people about their life stories, jobs, politics, families, joys, hopes and frustrations. Working People aims to lift up the voices and celebrate the diverse experiences of working-class people, to remind working people that our stories matter, and to build a sense of shared struggle and solidarity between working-class folks around the country.
With over 100,000 downloads in the past year, the podcast hopes to keep growing and to serve as a forum for working people, listeners and guests to share, listen and connect in ways that are so often denied in the mainstream media.
