In this episode, I talk with Cynthia Changyit Levin about her book, From Changing Diapers to Changing the World: Why Moms Make Great Advocates and How to Get Started.

Advocacy is a great way to get involved in driving change in our communities, yet very few of us ever actually learn how to become one. With over a decade of experience, Cynthia offers a step-by-step guide on how to be an effective advocate - in the US and beyond. While her book centres around mom advocates, anyone can learn from and be inspired by it!

Some topics of discussion include:

  • Why moms make great advocates
  • What people can get out of advocacy work (it’s not about being a martyr!)
  • How you as one person can make a difference
  • The importance of non-partisan advocacy
  • Practical steps to get started today!
  • And more!

    The Piketon Massacre

    The Piketon Massacre

    The most notorious mass murder in Ohio’s history happened on the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Pike County. Four crime scenes, thirty-two gunshot wounds, eight members of the Rhoden family left dead in their homes. Two years later a local family of four, the Wagners, are arrested and charged with the crimes. As the Wagners await four back-to-back capital murder trials, the KT Studios team revisits Pike County to examine: crime-scene forensics, upcoming legal proceedings, and the ties that bind the victims and the accused. As events unfold and new crimes are uncovered, what will it mean for all involved? What will it mean for Pike County?
