In the latest episode of Beyond the Margin, host Michael Shields is joined by frequent co-host Brian Sachson (and later on, in the second half of the podcast, is joined by Across the Margin cohort Christine Roden!) to wax political. On the eve of both the 2017 People’s Climate March in Washington D.C. and the day marking Trump’s 100th day as President of the United States, the group assembled discuss their motivations for attending the People’s Climate March, and then subsequently dig into their views surrounding the pros and con's of protest marches in general, all while stressing the need for action in the face of our planet’s looming environmental ruin.

In an episode which is divided into two parts, the first half recorded prior to the march in D.C., and the second half recorded post march in Baltimore, MD, President Trump’s first 100 days in office are analyzed, the president’s achievements (or lack thereof) are examined, and the administration's incompetence and the inherent danger of mixing policy making and ignorance are placed directly in the line of fire. So dive deep into one of Beyond the Margin's most politically charged episodes to date.
