Thrive Show on Activism and ME w/ Peter Staley

Jen Brea just spoke with Peter Staley, who was instrumental in ACT-UP and was the main focus of "How to Survive a Plague." Their conversation was all about figuring out how to translate the successes of the AIDS movement into our own activism. The show and the movie are definitely worth watching.
