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

    Pick a Side - PG:CC with Thomas Zimmer

    Pick a Side - PG:CC with Thomas Zimmer

    Join me and brilliant Georgetown history professor, author of Democracy Americana and host of the ’Is This Democracy’ podcast as we discuss where democracy is in America post the 2022 midterms. The Declaration of Independence might talk about a country where all men are created equal, but if we’re honest with ourselves, that’s not what everyone wants. History tells us there are those, an entire party in fact, who’d prefer to have a certain group in charge and know they don’t need the majority to achieve it. They simply need to convince enough people in the center that their worldview is better than what the left is offering and we could find ourselves in permanent minority rule. The truth of the matter is, our country is incredibly divided, and it’s up to us, every single one of us, to decide which way we want to go. There’s no middle ground left, no more excuses to be made, people must choose.

    Democracy’s Unsung Heroes PG:CC with David Rothkopf

    Democracy’s Unsung Heroes PG:CC with David Rothkopf

    Join brilliant political analyst, expert, and author David Rothkopf as we discuss his new book, American Resistance: The Inside Story of How the Deep State Saved the Nation, about how a host of government officials worked together to keep our dangerous, unhinged, ill prepared president, and his enablers, from doing irreparable damage to the US, our allies, and the planet as a whole. There are a lot of unsung heroes of the Trump presidency and many of them are faceless bureaucrats, military, even some civilians, who did everything they could to help preserve democracy during the greatest constitutional crisis the country has faced since the civil war. And now…apparently we’re thinking of doing it all again? What are we thinking?! Let’s find out!

    Less Hate, More Humanity a PG:CC with Alexandra Billings

    Less Hate, More Humanity a PG:CC with Alexandra Billings

    In the wake of the horrific shooting at Club Q in Colorado, it’s time we bring humanity back into the conversation, because hate is literally killing people. Join me and Broadway & Television superstar Alexandra Billings, as we discuss the Trans experience, the best way to be an ally, and remind everyone that the world is better when we make room for all of us. Despite the tragedies unfolding every day, this episode is the opposite of a downer. It’s an absolutely delightful, entertaining, and eye opening conversation with the most generous woman. I really can’t recommend this conversation highly enough.

    So That Went Well, PG:CC with White House Chief of Staff, Ron Klain

    So That Went Well, PG:CC with White House Chief of Staff, Ron Klain

    Ron Klain joins us for the post-midterm wrap up. Though not all the results are in, we do know that Democrats will hold the Senate, no election deniers will be in charge of elections, that Democrats have gained governorships and made headway in state houses and the power of hate and division might be on the wain. However, it shakes out, the midterms were a good day for democracy. We might be in for a contentious 2 years, but then again, aren’t we used to that by now? The bottom line is people took this election as their opportunity to register their distaste for extremism, election denialism and political violence. They came out to vote for human rights and bodily autonomy and a properly functioning government. If the country is sick, these elections feels a bit like a fever break. Are we out of the woods? Not by a long shot, but we live to fight another day and should be damn proud of our efforts.

    This is the last episode before the midterms. I’ll be back to the regular schedule and topics starting next week but I want to thank everyone for sticking with me through the season and the Candidate Conversations.
