The coalition at Repair.org has been hard at work getting 15 states to introduce Right to Repair bills so far this year. But just like any grassroots movement, they need as much support as they can get—which is why we started a podcast to help spread the word! Every other week, we’ll be gathering special guests to update you on the latest Right to Repair news. You’ll hear stories about the fixers fighting for fair repair legislation, learn how to start a coalition in your state, and get tips for talking to your state representatives.
To kick off the podcast last week, we walked through the history of Right to Repair live on our YouTube channel with movement leaders Nathan Proctor, Gay Gordon-Byrne, and Jessa Jones. You can watch the full livestream below, or listen to it in podcast form here and on iTunes.
We’re going to keep this going every other week, with the next live event taking place on Thursday, February 14th at 11 a.m. PST. Just like last time, we’ll be streaming it live from YouTube and then posting the audio as a podcast on our social accounts the next day. So be sure to subscribe to the iFixit YouTube channel and follow us on Twitter and Facebook so you don’t miss it.
Future episodes will focus on specific Right to Repair issues, so leave a note in the comments telling us what topics and guests you’d like us to feature! And if you can’t wait to learn more about the movement before the next installment, check out our recent blog posts and visit Repair.org.
Until next time, happy fixing!
