The Meteor and Pineapple Street Studios present “Undistracted with Brittany Packnett Cunningham,” a news commentary podcast. Our host, Brittany Packnett Cunningham is an activist, educator, and TV commentator. Episodes share occurrences and modern issues in the world through the critical lenses of intersectional feminism, race, gender, and ability. Through her work, Brittany is a voice for people interested in social justice and is a frontrunner rallying for change.
This podcast, as stated on her site, is a “weekly guide to the revolution.” Brittany’s extensive background includes spending time with the White House Task Force on 21st Century Policing and the Ferguson Commission. She completed fellowships at the Harvard Institute of Politics.
Brittany’s podcast delves into trailblazers that are facilitating change in our modern society. On the podcast’s website, she states: “Enough with the distractions, the noise, the billions of tweets. We got work to do, and we’re going to do it together, and we’re going to find our joy along the way. We are undistracted.”
Special guests join Brittany on many episodes. Dr. Chanda Prescod-Weinstein recently spoke with Brittany about Jeff Bezos’s space trip, and if/how it improves life for us Earth-bound folks. In a recent episode, Professor Kimberlé Crenshaw spoke about Critical Race Theory and explored why legislators attempt to stop schools from teaching it. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand spoke about how the military addresses sexual assault.
Brittany’s book, We Are Like Those Who Dream, is available this year. New episodes of the podcast are updated frequently.
