Labor Attorney Liss-Riordan Details MA Senate Bid

Josh Landes
Shannon Liss-Riordan

U.S. Senator Ed Markey and Congressman Joe Kennedy have gotten most of the attention in the 2020 Massachusetts Democratic primary. But a third candidate remains in the race for Senate: Shannon Liss-Riordan. A labor attorney from Texas with a degree from Harvard, Liss-Riordan touts her experience representing workers against corporations like Uber, Starbucks, and American Airlines. She sat down with WAMC to talk about why she got into the contentious primary.

Josh Landes has been WAMC's Berkshire Bureau Chief since February 2018, following stints at WBGO Newark and WFMU East Orange. A passionate advocate for Western Massachusetts, Landes was raised in Pittsfield and attended Hampshire College in Amherst, receiving his bachelor's in Ethnomusicology and Radio Production. His free time is spent with his cat Harry, experimental electronic music, and exploring the woods.
