It's game time. The battle to restore American democracy is underway and Democrats have chosen former Vice President Joe Biden as their champion. In this weekly show, Democratic Party activist and expat voter Karin Robinson explores the politics, policies and personalities of the 2020 election.

    Swing States!

    Swing States!

    Karin is joined by friend of the pod and journalist Skylar Baker-Jordan to celebrate Hamilton day, and discuss everything from the Biden campaign's good fundraising quarter to Skylar's perspective as a Kentuckyan on Amy McGrath winning the Kentucky Senate primary. And we assess which states are currently swing states, where the Biden campaign should putting its resources, and which Democratic leaning states we should worry about losing if the race tightens, and which Republican leaning states we might pick up if the race gets even more favourable for Biden.
    Plus, we play the Gut Check game, reacting to quotes from the news. 
    Stay tuned to the end for a surprise cameo from Karin's daughter seeking chocolate. Like you do.

    Joe Trippi

    Joe Trippi

    This week Karin speaks to veteran Democratic campaigner Joe Trippi about his work for Alabama Senator Doug Jones' reelection campaigns, how to effectively run a digital and grassroots campaign in 2020, and of course about the widespread protests against police violence that have broken out around the country. 
    We also take a moment to pay homage to some of the lives lost to police violence: remembering not just the deaths but also the lives of 

    George Floyd 
    Breonna Taylor 
    Tamir Rice 
    Philando Castille 
    Sandra Bland

    And many more black American citizens who have been taken from us by the very people who were meant to protect them.

    Trump V Twitter

    Trump V Twitter

    This week, Karin speaks to Jiore Craig, a VP at Greenberg Quinlan Rosner and expert on digital campaigning and online public sentiment. Together, they process the series of news events this week in which the President 1) had Twitter apply a fact check warning applied to his tweet spreading false fears about postal voting.  2) Retaliated against the platform by issuing un executive order of questionable legality and unclear impact 3) Then posted a tweet seeming to call for violence against protestors in Minnesota, which was restricted by Twitter under violence prevention rules. 
    We explore what the Biden campaign should be doing to get its message out through all this chaos and confusion, and how they can build effective digital infrastructure for the campaign.
