Here at BUST, election season is in full swing and we are ready to flex our political muscles at the polls! That’s why we are extra honored and excited to be featuring powerful voting-rights advocate Stacey Abrams on the cover of our fab Fall Issue, being interviewed by fellow activist Amber Tamblyn. Inside, we’ve got in-depth interviews with Joseph Gordon-Levitt about his powerful protest biopic The Trial of the Chicago Seven and Insecure’s comedy genius Natasha Rothwell. Plus, readers will find a surprising biography of the housewife who pioneered computer game graphics, a history of how the Influenza Epidemic of 1918 impacted women’s rights, and a guide to media literacy to help us all cut through the televised crap.
