Hope for the future !
Great podcast that showcases future leaders in the Democratic Party. If you need a break from the often depressing and demoralizing politics in DC, then this is the podcast for you. You get to hear about the work these young elected officials are doing in a boots-on-the-ground approach that really helps the listener get to know them. Inspiring!
