I start with Dr Claire Potter at 23 minutes after the news. Here is her bio in first person from her website...

I am a Professor of History at The New School for Social Research and co-executive Editor of Public Seminar, a digital magazine of politics and culture based at The New School. My main research and teaching areas are in United States political history after 1970, the history of gender and sexuality, mass culture, media and internet Studies. My most recent book is Political Junkies: From Talk Radio to Twitter, How Alternative Media Hooked Us on Politics and Stole Our Democracy (Basic Books, 2020). My other books, edited collections and articles can be found at my website, clairepotter.com.

In addition to my scholarship, I contribute to broader public conversations in the digital and legacy media, where good history can help inform the public about critical issues of the day. From 2011 to 2015, I blogged at The Chronicle of Higher Education. I have also written for The New York TimesThe Washington PostPoliticoThe BulwarkDissent, The Village Voice, Inside Higher Education, berfrois, review31, and Jacobin. 

My teaching reflects my scholarly commitments: to well-researched, accessibly written history; to historical writing that matters beyond the academy; to feminist and queer activist research; and to helping young historians acquire the methodological and technical tools they need to research and write the past in a twenty-first century digital world.

At 1:02  minutes in I welcome the great Maura Quint. Maura is a humor writer and activist whose work has been featured in publications such as McSweeneys and The New Yorker. She was named one of Rolling Stone’s top 25 funniest twitter accounts of 2016. When not writing comedy, Maura has worked extensively with non-profits in diverse sectors including political action campaigns, international arts collectives and health and human services organizations. She has never been officially paid to protest but did once find fifteen cents on the ground at an immigrants’ rights rally and wanted to make sure that had been disclosed. She was the co founder and executive director of TaxMarch.org 

And she recently began a new gig at the Americans for Tax Fairness campaign director
