First, Amanda checks in with Dr. Ravi Grivois-Shah from an earlier episode, to find out how his election went (spoiler: he won!), how he's feeling, and what comes next for school boards like his. Then, she talks with Nithya Raman, a progressive who beat an incumbent for a seat on the Los Angeles City Council in a grassroots underdog victory. Nithya's campaign was built to make a difference, win or lose -- find out how she took on the California Democratic machine, got people to pay attention to local politics, and is setting up to lead LA moving forward.
