Why Big Mouth?

Big Mouth Media was founded by former Congressional Candidate, Cindy Banyai. Cindy, like many others, noticed that there are few prominent progressive voices in Florida, especially in Southwest Florida, and especially in the media. So she reached out to progressive candidates and activists across the state to bring their voice to Big Mouth Media. Together we are ready to start shoveling the shit that the conservative media has been flooding into the zone.
