I won't assume because we all live in NY and are small business owners, that we all have the same politics, but... I am willing to bet that there are a lot of free-thinking people on this forum.
I know that there is a LOT to keep up with these days. I also know that if you find yourself being called to "resist" but also have a home, a body and a business to take care of (maybe even children, too), then you might not feel like hearing bad news before you start your day.
Recently, a friend recommended Pod Save America to Me, a political no bullshit podcast, with a "liberal" slant, hosted by former Obama speechwriters who are able to educate, engage, entertain, and also empower you to do something.
I am also a huge fan of On the Media, but I'm not promising any laughs there. (They are, however, incredible at dismantling the current mainstream media and debunking myths on BOTH sides of the aisle.)
Pod Save America also links up with Indivisible, which is an activist group that began as a shared google doc and provides resources for people who want to be involved and don't know how.
Moveon.org and many other organizations are organizing "Resistance Recesses" so that when our representatives are home, we can go ahead and voice our opinions. https://www.resistancerecess.com/event/resistance-aprilrecess/?akid=181249.33208003.W0luux&rd=1&t=1&zip=11211
I hope that you listen to Pod Save America. I actually always feel educated, and laugh aloud while I listen. : ) Hope this weather has been cheering you up and that your businesses are feeling some positive upticks!
