Jenna is the co-leader of PBC’s virtual chapter and is the host and producer of the Democracy Works podcast, which aims to rise above partisan politics and the daily news grind to take a broader look at issues impacting democracy. Each week Jenna and her co-hosts examine a different aspect of what it means to live in a democracy — from gerrymandering to criminal justice to the free press.
Like a lot of people, Mila Atmos felt discouraged after the 2016 U.S. presidential election. She saw political discourse falling to a new low and devolving from civil disagreements into people shouting at each other on cable news. She also saw a lack of civic engagement on all sides of the political spectrum. She started her podcast Future Hindsight as a way to bring more people to the table for civic engagement and civil discourse.
