INTERVIEW

In this episode of Catalyst Radio we hear about a grassroots group called Wolf PAC, a political action committee that is looking to “get money out of politics.” State director for the national organization Shaun MacDonald joins us in studio to explain Wolf PAC’s plan, and the issues it addresses. MacDonald also highlights the efforts locally and throughout Michigan.

 

Featured music is a song called “Politics Na Big Business” by Femi Kuti.
