Episode 138
The recent events that have been taking place in the US have motivated and energized many people to finally want to get informed, get involved and make a change. However many people, especially young, have no clue where to start. Even more, many feel as if their voices are too tiny to be heard. That is where Jessica Burnquist comes in. Jessica Burnquist is the director of “Rock Your World,” an organization that inspires students to take action to improve the challenges they see in the world around them. In this episode, we talk with Jessica about how this organization is reaching young activists, how education plays a role, and how we can rock our own worlds through activism.

Also, on theUSApodcast we dare to ask the question, are corporations people? If so, do they have the same rights as humans? Last week, energy company PG&E pled guilty to killing 84 people, but not one “person” will spend a day in jail. Why? Why are corporations considered people if they cannot be punished like people?

And also, what is with “cancel culture?” Is the left becoming too extreme or is this just all a part of changing the normal way we think? Donald Trump and Lindsay Graham say Democrats have gone nuts but is this true? Should we killing cancel culture or is cancel culture crucial? Mike breaks it all down!!!
