BRIC TV is now in its fifth season, and this week we celebrated three premieres: video series and podcast Glitter & Doom, audio fiction podcast In This Economy?, and the fifth season of Going In with Brian Vines! Learn more about each show below.
On the fifth season of Going In With Brian Vines, we're focusing on the ways everyday New Yorkers reudce, reuse, and rebel to tackle a global problem. In the season premiere, Brian interviews members of Extinction Rebellion, Sunrise Movement, and 350org about their grassroots efforts to combat climate change.
Another day, another crisis: rising fascism, ecological collapse, corporate omnipotence, the list goes on. What’s an artist to do? On Glitter & Doom, host MacKenzie Fegan talks to a broad range of cultural creators, from artists and authors to designers and chefs about how their work is part of the resistance and perhaps the solution. Glitter & Doom kicks off with a conversation with author Walter Mosley. Tune in on YouTube or listen and subscribe to the podcast on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, or Google Play.
