My name is Ryan Bloxham. I’m an ex-Mormon who grew up in rural Idaho and now studies mental health counseling in Boston, Massachusetts. All of my life I’ve been interested in politics, and all my life I’ve been searching for answers on why we as humans do what we do. With this podcast, I hope to find answers to complicated political questions and more by illuminating diverse voices, viewpoints, lived experiences, and passions, so that we can figure out together what kind of future we all want. This is political intercourse.
