Love the shows keep up the good work.

There is democratic power. We need more democratic power. Vote in your local democrat to leverage democratic power to get things going for all people in the country. Fight against the NEW BIG GOVERNMENT: republicans taking over your own body, your privacy, your Health Care, your right to vote, tax cuts for the corporate rich. Things I gathered as a “Podrishioner”.
