Ep. 11: Lobbying for Advocacy (feat. Courtney Snowden)
When you hear the word “lobbyist,” what comes to mind? If it’s an old guy in an expensive suit strutting down the Cannon House Office Building with a cigar and a checkbook, then it’s time for you to meet Courtney Snowden, a “new-school” lobbyist. In this episode, Joe and Martín break down what lobbying is, why you might need a lobbyist, and how to integrate lobbying into your broader advocacy efforts. Joe chats with Courtney to dispel some common lobbying myths and peel back the curtain from what has traditionally been a very mysterious and storied profession.
The Campaign Workshop “How to Win a Campaign” podcast has been incredibly helpful for me. While fairly new to political strategy and campaigning, I have found the podcast to be very informative, helping me with basic concepts along with more advanced strategies. I like the interviews with current and relevant political figures and consultants whom I find are experts and provide great resources. I also personally find the hosts very helpful, with great stories to capture the principles of the work. Overall, I am very pleased with this podcast and continue to subscribe and listen.
Vital insight and perspective
A really engaging podcast from a team with a ton of experience and featuring really inspiring voices from the movement. Highly recommend.
Martin, Joe, and Molly do such a great job explaining goal setting, getting leadership on board, and how to keep volunteers engaged through the legislative process. Thank you, all!
