A word from Ryan and Raven: 

We are two students at New York University trying to make sense of politics in 2018. This is a podcast for us to help you do the same! We'll be speaking with some of the coolest professors, student leaders, and local activists to learn how we can all navigate the age of Trump. We'll also be breaking down some of the week’s biggest stories. Our hope is that our Fighting Words can be a spark for change on every campus.
