Today, we have a very special episode for you as we dive deep into the life of our very own Corbin Trent (whose first name actually IS Brian)! Zack, Saikat and Corbin met each other on the Bernie Sanders 2016 Presidential campaign when Corbin was organizing Tennessee for Bernie with nothing more than his car and willpower. From that, he went on to co-found Brand New Congress and Justice Democrats, the organizations that recruited Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez among others to run for Congress. He went on to be Communications Director for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's 2018 campaign as well as for her congressional office, where he was pivotal in launching the Green New Deal and creating the media moments that allowed it to become a national sensation.
In this episode, we dive into Corbin's life leading up to the Bernie Sanders campaign in 2016. We find out how a guy running a furniture components factory and machine shop ended up going all in on a political revolution and completely transforming what people think of as feasible in America.
