UNDISTRACTED with Brittany Packnett Cunningham - January 8, 2021 - 35:35

This was a rollercoaster of a week—but before there was a white nationalist coup, there was a major, momentous Senate victory in Georgia. How did it happen? And how can we do it again, and again? Host Brittany Packnett Cunningham unpacks those questions with writer, producer and activist America Ferrera, who helped rally the Latinx vote with her new organization She Se Puede.

And of course, Brittany brings us the latest Untrending news.
