Political Journalist and Technology Policy Analyst Cory Lancaster is on a quest to understand and solve the social policy problems of the 21st century. In her new podcast, 82 Tabs of Politics and Policy, the Social Engineer turned Software Developer has gathered a team of analysts, journalists, film-makers, photographers, and poets to call on their networks and nerd out about policy solutions.
Together, Cory and her team are presenting resources for currents events issues and taking ownership of reform by putting action behind their thoughts.This podcast is not a space for reiterating the policy issues of this political administration, or placing blame on the current political climate. This podcast is a space for highlighting solutions and the analyses behind them.
The purpose of this project is to invent solutions with diverse intellectuals and raise awareness. We’re covering everything from federal politics to local current events swept below the fold. In quarter one we’re tackling local and federal elections, automation, foreign policy, the DMV’s missing girls, sex work, public safety, police brutality, healthcare, political expression in hip hop, technology’s impact on black market trade, and much more!
Although you may only hear us for one hour each week, you can find our op-eds, articles, field interviews, community service events, reading lists and small business shout outs bi-weekly on TheBlackJuice.com and Medium at Medium.com/@82Tabs.
