PODCAST EPISODE

Marching for Medicare for All with Savage Joy

The Killjoy Guide

Jul 23 2021 • 1 hr 39 mins


In this premiere episode of The Killjoy Guide, Meg breaks down why Medicare for All is a feminist issue and how our current healthcare system impacts women across gender, race, class, and sexuality. Then, she talks to Joy Marie Mann (aka Savage Joy @SavageJoyMarie1), one of the lead national organizers for the March for Medicare for All, about her experiences as a disabled woman in left indie media, navigating the healthcare system after she lost her sight and the upcoming March for Medicare for All (and it's "controversies").


The March for Medicare for All takes place Saturday, July 24, 2021, in 55 cities across the country.  Check out the website m4m4all.org to find the one nearest you and to sign the petition to demand Congress pass Medicare for All now.
