As a Millennial, political advocate, and founder of OurTime.org, host Matthew
Segal will tackle the political themes and issues that matter most to all
Americans and his generation specifically. OurTime with Matthew Segal will
encourage Millennial listeners to understand the wonkiest of policies,
emerging social trends, and cultural issues still on the fringes by inviting
influencers on the show to help translate these political and cultural themes
in straightforward language.
"Millennials are fiercely independent and less attached to any political or
religious institution than any previous generation, and the key to
understanding what young, diverse voters look and sound like is as easy as
giving them a platform to express themselves," said Scott Greenstein,
President and Chief Content Officer, SiriusXM. "This is a generation that is
always connected, whose exuberance has changed the face of American politics.
This is a forum where fresh new insight into the issues can be discussed."
"I'm psyched to join with SiriusXM to untangle complicated political issues
for my generation," said Segal. "The language used in DC is both confusing and
intimidating, and I, along with my listeners, want to minimize the jargon, and
better understand the practical implications of policy, without being
condescended to. Each week, we'll carefully explore a new theme in depth with
expert political and cultural leaders so we can have a fundamental basis of
knowledge to inform our decision making. From there, we'll know who to vote
out of office!"
The six-week series OurTime with Matthew Segal will begin on April 26 and air
Saturdays at 2:00 pm ET on SiriusXM P.O.T.U.S., channel 124, and through the
SiriusXM Internet Radio App on smartphones and other connected devices, as
well as online at siriusxm.com. Subscribers will also be able to listen to
the show via SiriusXM On Demand through the SiriusXM Internet Radio App for
smartphones and other mobile devices and online at siriusxm.com.
