Actify Press Launches Online Show Called CHAT

Welcome to the launch of Actify’s show called CHAT (Communications, Happenings, And Trends)

online show

CHAT is an online show posting segments on Actify’s Youtube Channel. It is hosted by Amanda Cumming and produced by Janet “Lumpy Louise” Mullen. We will be conducting weekly interviews with authors and other guests in 20-30 minute segments. Also, in shorter parts, we will talk about trending political themes. 

This week on CHAT, your host Amanda Cumming sat down with Actify’s writer Matt Cox to discuss his article “Black Panther vs. Batman: Social Influence on Comic Book Heroes.” Matt brings up reasons why he believes if Black Panther had the same exposure as Batman, there would be a solid case that Black Panther is the better superhero and why that exposure has yet to happen.  The interview will be released in two parts so look for both on our YouTube channel for Actify Press. The first segment can be found here: Part 1: Black Panther vs. Batman

Our first segment released is a discussion with Amanda and the show’s producer, Janet “Lumpy Louise” Mullen, about the Trump administration’s proposed reform on SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) which currently is utilized by over 44 million people. Featured in this segment is Rio Slade’s article, “OH SNAP! An Invasion of Privacy”, which discusses how the poor are not awarded the same freedoms as the wealthy in the wealthiest country on Earth. Catch that segment here:

 

Next, on CHAT, Amanda talks about the uncertain fate of DACA recipients and how both the Republicans and Democrats are failing the DREAMers. With the March 5th deadline fast approaching, will our government fail the nearly 800,000 recipients of DACA status, or will they come together and offer them a path to citizenship?

White Supremacy, Patriarchy and Guns: FL Shooter Had Record of Death Threats, Violence Against WomenThe final segment on our online show out this week ties in the Parkland Shooting to Actify writer’s, Pamela Getz’ piece “The Enduring Destructive Legacy of Whiteness.” The article takes a look at why most mass shootings in America are perpetrated by angry white males and how we need to focus on, not only the gun issues in this country but educating kids at a young age against systemic racism.
