On our fourth episode this week, I explore the ideological diversity among women of color with Shirlene Ostrov, the Chairman of the Hawaii Republican Party, and Dr. Leah Wright Rigueur, a leading expert on Black Republicans. “Rise” looks closer at feminism and social issues, from China to the U.S. with writer Frankie Huang, and a provocative discussion of Black leadership with Janaya “Future” Khan, international ambassador of the Black Lives Matter movement.

And this week, I have a new question for listeners! What is the most important issue to you as a voter, and why? Let me know what you think by calling us at 929-353-7006 and leaving a voicemail, or writing in your response here.
