If you’re getting this email, it’s because you signed up to hear more about The Meteor. And hello! We’re a group of creative people using the power of storytelling, journalism and art to advance gender and racial equity. Maybe you’ve seen some of our early work; if not, roam around on our site or our Instagram and enjoy. We’ll launch officially in 2021, and there’s lots more to come.

In the meantime, we’re five days out from the end of an election the world is watching. We’re ready for a new tomorrow, one built by the voices and the vision of women. With that in mind, we’re thrilled to share our newest project with you:


Listen to The Meteor’s new podcast with Brittany Packnett Cunningham—live today!

Hosted by educator, activist and TV commentator Brittany Packnett Cunningham, UNDISTRACTED takes on the most pressing issues of our time with a laser focus on the underrepresented angles of gender, race, ability and more. The goal? To create a more just world—one that works for all of us.

You probably already know Packnett Cunningham, but here’s a refresher: Described by President Barack Obama as a leader “whose voice is going to be making a difference for years to come,” she was a member of the White House Task Force on 21st Century Policing and the Ferguson Commission, and a co-host of “Pod Save the People” for the last three years.

Today’s launch episode features Cecile Richards, co-founder of Supermajority, who’s been working since the day after the last election to help drive women to the polls for this one. She talks to Packnett Cunningham about how that’s going, and you don’t want to miss their raw, real discussion.
