36 SAG-AFTRA | Summer 2021 | Podcast Podcast Playback The SAG-AFTRA podcast continues to roll out amazing episodes featuring high-profile members, industry leaders and subject-matter experts. But in case you've missed an episode — or are looking to add a new favorite to your podcast library — here are some of our favorite soundbites. "I love acting. I don't really see it as a job because it feels natural to me, and I think I want to do this for the rest of my life; I already love doing it now." Actor and singer Madison Taylor Baez from Spotlight with Selena's Madison Taylor Baez "Representation and storytelling, especially for young women and girls, is so important because we not only show the current culture, but we also shape culture with the stories we tell." SeeHer Executive Advisor Knatokie Ford from Gotta SeeHer to Be Her "I think that it's important that whatever the jobs are, [we] make sure people have good working conditions, wages and decent benefits. We have to organize the workers that are here." Chris Shiflett from Foo Fighters Guitarist Chris Shiflett "Had one thing gone differently, I wouldn't be the person that I am today. I feel like I have a responsibility to represent Black trans women, and I never would have thought that's what God wanted me to do by just existing or sharing my story." Actor Alexandra Gray from Trans Performers, Breaking Barriers and Stopping the Hate "I was in the labor movement before I came into office … [and] I came as a labor advocate. It doesn't matter what kind of job you're in, every worker needs a voice in the workplace and the ability to stand up for themselves." California Assembly member Lorena Gonzalez, District 80, from Free Artists from Industry Restrictions Subscribe to the podcast on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, Stitcher, Overcast, Pocket Casts and Tune In.
