She has co-authored six New York Times bestsellers, including "Breaking the Sound Barrier" and "The Silenced Majority: Stories of Uprisings, Occupations, Resistance and Hope." Her latest book is "Democracy Now!: Twenty Years Covering the Movements Changing America."

Also in this episode: The Ovarian Psycos Bicycle Brigade is an unapologetic, feminist, and women of color bicycle crew based in East Los Angeles. They are the subject of a new documentary of the same name. OVAs Xela De La X and Andi Xoch, with filmmaker Joanna Sokolowski, discuss white supremacy, violence, and the need for safe sisterhood.
