Good stuff (10/5⭐️)

This show is engaging and interesting and worth listening to. It has a tone that I really like and value, people sharing their stories and their perspectives, not throwing barbs at anyone. I have let go of political shows that rile me up without fail. There are some truths that can challenge us, that are difficult, that we need to listen to. And there are people who just want to stir up anger without any underlying point to make. I’m learning to discern the difference. This is a good show. Thank you for your contribution to a healthy conversation 🌺

Informative and Real

I am a chicano male, but, I share the same interest in politics. I feel as though we are losing our voice to corporations, an entity that can’t even vote. This podcast finds those leaders that not only represent the people, but, the greater good. It is very refreshing to have that in this day and age.

I encourage all to listen and learn about how we can make the world a better place.

Currently running, currently inspired to keep at it

As a lone female candidate in a crowded primary, going against conventional knowledge and establishment politics to show that brown woman CAN run for whatever political office they choose, this podcast could not be more timely. Thank you for so articulately and passionately stating what we are feeling in, dealing with and fighting for when seeking an actual seat at the table. This is just the beginning.

I am also a proud member of the Emerge family and cannot thank you enough for helping give me not only the courage/support needed to run, but the OPPORTUNITY and ACCESS to do so also ✊🏼✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿 Let’s change the typical political narrative to match our realities. Thank you #bgg 💙
