    Republicans Take the House

    Republicans Take the House

    The results are in: The Democrats will keep the Senate, the Republican will take the House. In this episode, in preparation for the 118th Congress, Jen analyzes the detailed policy documents released by the House Republicans to see what they could reasonably accomplish, who their policies would help or hurt, and how they will likely wield their power in a politically divided Congress.

    CHIPS: A State Subsidization of Industry

    A new law, known as the CHIPS Act, provides over $50 billion to existing, profitable companies to fund new semiconductor production facilities in the United States. In this episode, we examine why Congress decided to gift these companies our tax money now and explore the geopolitical implications of this funding decision. Beyond semiconductors, the law provides further corporate welfare for the creation of things that many of us tax payers likely support. This law is complicated; let's get nuanced.

The ONLY Honest Congressional Podcast To Get The Facts

I’ve been listening to congressional dish for years and it’s the ONLY podcast I listen to to get facts about what’s really going on in congress. No matter what political party you belong to, this podcast is for you because facts are facts and those are hard to come by in the media.

It seems like all of our knowledge of congress comes from polarized, corrupt, and deceitful sources that twist facts or only report on events /information that will persuade viewers to think or vote a certain way or they only report the big newsworthy stuff. There’s so much more stuff IMPORTANT stuff that’s going on in congress that isn’t being shared with us in the news. Because of this, I’ve always been reluctant to get involved or informed with congress or politics. Congressional dish is the first podcast that I’ve actually trusted and it’s extremely entertaining to listen to. She doesn’t accept money from political groups that seek to gain control of what can and can’t be said about what goes on in congress and she ALWAYS gives you her sources. She’s honest and gives you the facts, her thoughts, and tells you that you don’t have to take her word for it or share her opinions. Because of Jennifer Briney (the host) I took elective courses in political science FOR FUN in undergrad to learn more about congress so that I can be an informed voter. Now that I’m in medical school, I hope I can use my platform to share this podcast with everyone I know with the hope that one day this country will be composed of more informed citizens and voters. Also it’s the least I can do because this podcast is such an INVALUABLE resource. Listen to it. I swear you won’t be sorry! Thank you Jennifer Briney and Congressional Dish!

soflotchr ,

Hard to listen to

Her bias is unbearable at times. I wish the host would not call people names and be so overtly one sided.

tarheeljeff ,

Incredibly Informative!

Jen is providing an amazing service to anyone that will listen. The level of insight and education which can be gained from this podcast is unparalleled! I also truly enjoy how she keeps personal politics out of this, and simply shares the facts, data, processes, etc.
