I am overjoyed to announce that Hellbent Media has teamed up with Crush the Midterms and Emily’s List to bring you 2 new shows. Each will be a limited-run, 10 episode series released every Tuesday until election day, November 6, 2018.
Crush the Midterms will focus on the practical aspects of activism; how to get involved and do the work necessary to get Democratic candidates elected. From door knocking to donating, what you do matters. It can be hard to know where to start, and Crush the Midterms has developed a tool to give you a customized plan to help you get started. This show expands on that plan and gives you a call to action every week, so you know you’ve done everything you can to protect our democracy.
Candid(ate) will feature interviews with Emily’s List-backed candidates running in the midterm elections. Each week, we pick a theme and discuss the women and why they chose to run: their stories, their issues, and their plan to change the political landscape.
Both shows strive to bring important issues to the forefront of the political discussion in the 10 weeks up to the midterm elections. We are so excited to have you with us on this journey.
On a personal level, I cannot tell you all how overjoyed I am to be part of these shows. The fact that Hellbent has grown so much in the last 20 months is absolutely indescribable. What started as a little passion project has grown into the feminist media company of my dreams, I owe it all to each and every one of you Hellions. Thank you for being here and for listening and for being my personal support system when the world feels like it’s all going to hell. I hope you all love the new content and enjoy the shows as much as I do.
