Arlington Government Channel ACMi

Wide Angle is a weekly interview show featuring guest authors and activists from the Arlington community and beyond. While we hope to give context to stories you might hear on the news, Wide Angle is by no means a “news show.” And although we explore issues from a political angle on occasion, neither are we a “political show.”

Instead, Wide Angle aspires to offer a quiet place to explore the big ideas not often addressed by our mainstream media: incarceration and income inequality, war and military recruitment, race and Israel/Palestine, as well as issues that underscore our common humanity, such as food, grief and hospice. And we endeavor to leave viewers of every episode with at least two things: energy borne of frustration or illumination, anger or hope, as well as the resources to pursue action and make change.
