    Episode 112: Reconnecting Congress - Breaking Down Partisan Divisions on the Hill

    Far too often, Americans hear about how polarized the U.S. Congress has become in recent decades.

    Dave Tennent, creator of the CNCT app and a former congressional staffer, shares some of the networking challenges he and many staffers faced during COVID and how his app could revitalize socialization on the Hill.
