American Democracy is not promised to us and, with all the forces working against it, saving it will take a level of work most people aren’t ready for. The Politics Girl Podcast is here to give people a reason to care and a reason to fight. Our goal is to inspire. To instill in people a true understanding of what this country COULD be, if the right people were fighting for it, and what it WILL be if they don’t. It’s a political podcast yes, but more than that, it’s a podcast about America’s potential, where one passionate, and slightly mouthy, immigrant attempts to motivate the country to become what it promised to be but, so far, has yet to become. You’ll leave more knowledgeable, more engaged, and more sure that you, personally, can make a difference to the future of American democracy. Everyone’s got a little time for that right? Subscribe for new episodes every Tuesday. We’re in a fight for our country. We sure as hell better know what we’re fighting for. xo

    Election 2024 Do More. Worry Less: A Conversation Simon Rosenberg

    Election 2024 Do More. Worry Less: A Conversation Simon Rosenberg

    Something magical is happening. As MAGA doubles down on extremism and chaos, they appeal to fewer and fewer Americans. At this point all they have is their mad king, while Democrats, liberals and anyone who believes in the American experiment has the opportunity to really make America into the country we tell people we are. We have to plan to win, organize to fight, and aim, not just for success, but for growth and expansion. We can do this and we should feel very exited about the opportunities ahead of us.

    A New Way to Get the News: A Conversation Courier’s Tara McGowan

    A New Way to Get the News: A Conversation Courier’s Tara McGowan

    Clearly there’s a need for a new type of media, one that exists explicitly to give people facts, but also to protect and strengthen our democracy. Today we talk to the amazing Tara McGowan, founder and publisher of Courier, one of the fastest growing news networks in the country. Courier is a new take on an old format that honors local news with real reporters on the ground, state news where these big federal decisions are playing out, and explanations of the biggest issues of the day the way the majority of people now consume them which is in bite size pieces on line. This is a make it or break it election year for democracy, and mainstream media has done nothing but enable the both sides b******t that’s brought us this close to authoritarianism. It’s time to support a new type of media, and this one is truly worth your support.

    It’s Not About Being Invited to the Cookout: A Conversation about Anti-Racist Work with Tony Nabors

    It’s Not About Being Invited to the Cookout: A Conversation about Anti-Racist Work with Tony Nabors

    “Anti-racist” isn’t an identity, it’s actions. It’s doing the work of deconstructing the systems of racism we were all raised in. Systems that harm us all. It’s not about being a “good person” or not being called “racist”, it’s about genuinely interacting with the world to make it better. And yeah, we’re going to make mistakes while we do it. We’re going to blow it and get embarrassed, but that doesn’t mean we should stop trying. Ultimately, it’s not about us. It’s about living and growing in a society where Diversity, Equity and Inclusion aren’t just a department, but a way of life. To join me to talk about all this is the amazing Tony Nabors, the owner and principal consultant of Racial Equity Insights who’s spent the past 20 years working to move people and organizations from “hesitancy about racial equity” to confidence, as they learn how to be effective and action orientated allies. This is a great conversation. I hope you’ll join us.

    How to Win 2024! A Conversation with Swing Left’s Yasmin Radjy

    How to Win 2024! A Conversation with Swing Left’s Yasmin Radjy

    Here we are at the top of 2024 with MAGA extremism on a rocket ship to the moon and the GOP hell-bent on stripping away as many of our fundamental rights & freedoms as possible. We don’t have a second or dollar to waste. We want to win 2024. We NEED to win 2024. But it doesn’t have to be endlessly miserable or expensive to do it. Which is why I want you to hear from the Executive Director of Swing Left, Yasmin Radjy. Swing Left is one of the largest drivers of grassroots volunteers and donors across the country and we have an amazing talk about how to make a difference without getting 10,000 emails a day, or having to question where our money is even going. Absolutely worth your time.

    The Supreme Court is Doing What?! A Conversation with Strict Scrutiny’s Melissa Murray and Kate Shaw

    The Supreme Court is Doing What?! A Conversation with Strict Scrutiny’s Melissa Murray and Kate Shaw

    We can’t take our eyes off this court for a minute. Which is why I’m joined by Melissa Murray and Kate Shaw, two constitutional professors and hosts of Crooked Media’s legal podcast Strict Scrutiny, to go over the cases you really have to know. From Donald Trump’s Presidential immunity and ballot presence, to abortion drug access, to the attempt of big money to gut our federal agencies’ ability to regulate, these are things you need to know. We can’t just have justices out here taking perks, and bribes, and cases, only to change our laws without us noticing. These people respond to our attention, so we can’t stop watching what they do.

    This Will Help You Vote: A Conversation with Blue Voter Guide’s Wayne Liebman

    This Will Help You Vote: A Conversation with Blue Voter Guide’s Wayne Liebman

    If you look at statistics it was actually non-voters who won the last Presidential election. Too many people think their vote doesn’t count, or as our guest, Wayne Liebman says, they think their vote counts too much and are afraid to make a mistake. The Blue Voter Guide takes the burden out of voting. They do the research into the candidates, ballot initiatives, and endorsements so you can see who shares your values and build a ballot you can be proud of. As Wayne says, “political campaigns center on specific candidates and measures. The Blue Voter Guide shifts that focus to voters, solving their number one problem, which is ballot confusion.” The Blue Voter Guide not only helps voters make informed choices up and down the ballot, it makes the entire process quick and easy driving up turn out, and it’s turnout that wins elections. You NEED to know about this organization.

Clear, concise and timely

Love the clarity of analysis- great work

Jenlozhon ,

A Breath of Fresh Air

Having followed Leigh McGowan on TikTok, I’m so happy to hear this longer, more detailed but equally passionate take on American politics that she brings to us all. Even though I live in the UK, I am engrossed in everything she talks about.

Madeleine Morris ,

So glad

To find a longer format for Politics Girl. Her Twitter feed is brilliant. I know this will be even better.
