Manage episode 282823741 series 2779638
On Frank Chiang's second episode with POC Podcast, Frank and Nancy discuss Frank's "conservative" views. They're not actually conservative, so please give a listen to the entire conversation. Frank proposes that cancelling student loan debt and giving a $2,000 stimulus check are not enough to solve the actual problems at hand. We discuss student loan debt forgiveness, stimulus checks, universal basic income (UBI), where delivery service commissions actually go and how to give the most back when ordering online, and LA vs NYC.
Welcome to Progressive Opinions of Color (POC Podcast), a podcast where progressive people of color talk about everything.
Progressive Opinions of Color began in August 2020 as a platform to create space for more POC voices in conversations about politics and economics. We've covered the 2020 presidential election, the state of the economy during COVID-19, Kamala Harris, the coronavirus pandemic, the state of the economy, and other pressing topics in politics, economics, and culture, all through perspectives inclusive of the lived experiences of people of color. Whether you're new to politics or already a huge politics nerd, we hope this podcast inspires community and conversation among us. Join us in reimagining politics and economics with underrepresented voices.

I triple majored in Economics, Government (Political Science) and Gender Studies at Dartmouth and have a Master’s in Development Economics from Oxford. I work as an Economist full time and have previously worked in economic policy at the White House (under Obama, of course) and progressive think tanks.
