Activism Saved Me
Abigail E. Disney interviews bold thinkers in the world of arts, politics, academia—people fighting for a more equitable and world with the knowledge and skills they’ve acquired over a lifetime.
Abigail took a podcasting hiatus while out promoting her new documentary, The American Dream and Other Fairy Tales, which asks why so many employees at “the happiest place on earth” can’t feed their families, even when working full time. For Season 4 of All Ears, Abigail asks economists, and others who are “rethinking capitalism”, how they would fix our broken economy.
