A couple kids from Pittsburgh, Tony Griffith & Ryan Herbinko, chatting about all things political in the region...but deviating from time to time.
Jill Beck, Democratic Nominee for PA Superior Court
The Kids have expanded their horizons and are going statewide on this episode. Representing Allegheny County, we have the well-versed and experienced Jill Beck to chat about her background, as well as what goes on in Harrisburg with the Superior Court and how it affects all Pennsylvanians.
Matt Dugan, Democratic Nominee for District Attorney
Probably the most prolific guest of the pod, the man who has polarized the District Attorney race, Matt Dugan talks shop with the Kids. We chat about his upbringing and the very influential time he spent in Allegheny County rising the ranks of the Public Defender's Office. Dugan describes the very bright future for both Allegheny County and the chief law enforcement of office of the County.
Erica Rocchi Brusselars, Democratic Nominee for County Treasurer
The Kids come at you with a brand new guest, our Democratic Nominee for Treasurer, Erica Rocchi Brusselars. From her upbringing in California to her collegiate time in Oakland, then off to Mississippi for teaching, and then back to Pittsburgh to settle in the Northside, the Kids get the full bio of Erica. As well as her dedication to the Democratic Party over her adult life. And of course, she clarifies that an actuary has nothing to do with birds or surveying.
Patrick Sweeney, Democratic Nominee for Court of Common Pleas
We need a few big wins this fall, so we're back to give you all the deets about the Democratic Candidates for the 2023 General Election. First stop is with a friendly face, who's making his return to the podcast, Mr. Patrick Sweeney. We chat about his campaigning history, as well as his secret weapon this time around, Campaign Manager, Alex Rose.
The WAYYY Post-Primary Recap
Ryan pulled his weight for once and reeled in two great guests to discuss the aftermath of the May Primary. The Kids are joined by the Northside Cowboy, himself, Chris Rosselot and All-Things-Politics, political strategist Miss Erin Wise. In addition to recapping the election, the conversation also discusses what we have to look forward to this fall in the General Election.
Primary Election Day '23
Surprise, we made it just in time with your Primary Election Preview Episode. We discuss 'em all, front to back and side to side. Whoever you vote for, just make sure you show up and vote!
Great podcast!!! Always look forward to when it drops!!!!
So much potential
I really enjoy listening to the candidates and learning their backgrounds. The host that talks over everyone and the sound effects are very distracting and not needed at all. The content that is already there is enough on its own. Aside from that, this has the potential to be a fantastic podcast.
