Series will focus sharply on the incoming administration's proposed policies, it's cause and effect. Our Website will provide information and action items Flint Michigan still doesn't have clean water and neither do 32 other cities in America. 45.3 million people in the U.S. live in poverty. The United States consumes 81% of the world's supply of oxycodone while only being 5% of the world’s population. Not that you heard much about that during the presidential election. Many in the media seemed more focused on capitalizing off a horse race between two candidates than reporting dire issues facing our country. Fake news stories proliferated and then dominated the Internet, most went unchecked, and many were disproportionally aimed at one side. The media was stuck in first gear depicting false equivalencies between Clinton and Trump and pushing a narrative that this election wasn’t about race or gender but economic anxiety. This all contributed to a reality TV star wrought with scandal and serious deficiencies to be elected over one of the most qualified people to ever run for our highest office. How did we let this happen? Interviewers’ Maya Contreras and Mia Brett will delve into that burning question while focusing sharply on what a Trump administration will actually do. How will it affect our Country? The world? What can we do as citizens to protect our rights and institutions that might be in endangered or dismantled under a Trump administration? This show will have multiple segments, locations throughout the U.S., be imbued with powerful music and some of the best minds our country has to offer discussing these complex issues. We will conduct interviews with our fellow citizens, expressing their concerns and hopes for the future. The first two episodes, “Post-Truth” and “Chicken Little”, will touch on Trump's plan for his first 100 days in office, and put a spotlight on his cabinet members. In all episodes Maya & Mia will be interviewing some of America's top policy and history professors, constitutional lawyers, community leaders, economists, environmentalist, women's right advocates, policy makers and more. We will also take a look back at some of our former presidents, which policies were built to last and have served the country well, and which ones had disastrous long-term effects.Activity status unknown.
