The Bennett family has been at the heart of Utah politics for over half a century. So what happens when they talk about the issues of the day around the dinner table? Join Jim, the dad, and Abby, the daughter for a free- wheeling political discussion with an intergenerational perspective.

College student Abby is a political independent, while her father Jim is a former Republican who became the first candidate of the new United Utah Party in 2017, running for Congress and garnering over 14,000 votes. Jim's father, Bob Bennett, served as a GOP senator from Utah for eighteen years after being unceremoniously ousted by the Tea Party. Bob was well-respected and, toward the end of his life, co-created the Utah Debate Commission, facilitating public discourse between leading candidates. Jim was the first non-Republican/non-Democrat to participate in a UDC debate. Abby may well be the next.

Very balanced

Great podcast that doesn’t blame sides and Jim tries to have a neutral opinion on issues.
