Sundays from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. In a political media landscape dominated by white men, “Our Body Politic” is unapologetically centered on reporting about how women of color experience the major political events of today, and how women of color shape the issues. Weekly hour-long episodes feature in-depth conversations about the economy, health, politics, education, the environment, and other pressing issues.
Award-winning journalist Farai Chideya hosts the show. She has brought her analysis and reporting to a variety of news outlets including ABC News, FiveThirtyEight, CNN, Newsweek, and the Intercept. Chideya has worked both behind the scenes and in public forums on questions of media equity — the ways in which media can serve rural and urban Americans; people of all races and national backgrounds, and gender — for the health of civil society.
