David versus Goliath fights, told from the behind-the-slingshot point of view: that’s “The Good Fight, with Ben Wikler,” the award-winning, MoveOn-powered podcast and radio show about people changing the world. And it’s taping an unmissable live episode right from the heart of Netroots Nation.
Be a part of it! Your hoorays and boos will power the Win-O-Meter in a special edition of the Win Report, your friends will wow you with career-making cameos in wickedly satirical comedy sketches, and your heart will soar as you hear progressive champions reveal the true stories of against-all-odds fights for a better world. Bring tissues to dry your tears, lozenges to rescue your cheering-hoarse voice… and a unquenchable thirst for victory.
