Guest(s) Appearing on this Episode
Lisa Bennett
A formerly jaded and once cynical U.S. citizen, Lisa Bennett would have considered herself to be extremely politically illiterate just one year ago. Since she began to follow Bernie Sanders’ campaign, Lisa has made a complete 180-degree turn in the other direction and she’s realized the high importance of becoming engaged in the process and recognized how ignorance and complacency pose a real threat to our American democracy.

She’s a former pageant titleholder, but more importantly she’s a wife to her wonderful husband Jim; and an adoring fan of Valerie’s Current Events Update every Thursday, so suffice it to say she’s very excited to be a part of the very 1st broadcast of Current!
