Who Is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez?

After defeating one of the most powerful Democrats in the House, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has become America's most prominent young progressive.

From participating in protests outside of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi's office to proposing visionary policy like the Green New Deal, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a Congressional All-Star. 

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez, who will turn 31 in October, is a politician with a long career ahead of her. As she cruises toward a second term, more than anything else, she has proven that it is possible to fight back against the moneyed political establishment and win.  

For the first episode of the second season of "Who Is?," it's AOC.  


"Who Is?," an original podcast hosted by NowThis correspondent Sean Morrow, explores the stories of well-known, powerful politicians in the United States and beyond.

Over the course of sixteen episodes, Season One focused on top leaders in Washington, Trump’s inner circle, the field of presidential hopefuls, and major political donors. The good, the bad, and the ugly.

Season Two tackles the politicians, billionaires, tech moguls, and movements that shape our lives. Sean is back, too.
