Episode #65: What Trump’s Presidency Means for Music

Activism, Policy 0 comments
A presidency doesn’t usually hold so many unknowns for the music community, but the election of Donald Trump will affect a range of issues important to musicians and music industry professionals. On this episode of The Future of What, we have a frank discussion about how Trump’s presidency could influence issues like healthcare, net neutrality, free expression and more. We’re joined by Kevin Erickson of The Future of Music Coalition, an organization that specializes in education, advocacy and research on behalf of musicians. We also talk with Jon Coombs, who’s behind the ‘Our First 100 Days’ project with Secretly Group. Finally, Jana Hunter of Lower Dens speaks candidly about the Affordable Care Act and making music in difficult times.
