    EP11: Jesus, Guns and Babies with Rep Sam Park

    EP11: Jesus, Guns and Babies with Rep Sam Park

    Welcome back for Season Two of the Confused Caucus.

    The past few months have been an absolute rollercoaster at the Gold Dome. We are excited to be back, looking at politics through the eyes of those in power, with those impacted by it - all the while trying to make sense of the nonsense that is politics.

    Today we’re joined by Rep. Sam Park, who has recently stepped into chair of the Gwinette State House Delegation, which is currently in the process of re-districting.

    In this episode we discuss the re-districting process, the history of redlining and gerrymandering within the state of Georgia, various bills coming down the pipeline in the State House, and much more.

    EP10: “2021 GA House Recap” with Minority Leader James Beverly

    EP10: “2021 GA House Recap” with Minority Leader James Beverly

    It’s been a few days since Sine Die - and while the paper bill confetti is still on the floor - we sat down with Minority Leader of Georgia House of Representatives Democratic Caucus Dr. James Beverly! aka “Leader Beverly”


    We wanted to understand what his biggest takeaways were from this session and his goals for the next one. What he hopes the brand of the GA Dem party will be and his strategy to get there. It is no surprise that he was a lecturer in leadership at Mercer University given his optimistic outlook and focus on “the work” as he puts it. He tells us the inside scoop on where legislative dealings go down...and let’s just say no space is sacred at the Capital. We went down the rabbit hole talking about his favorite conspiracy theory and discovered that it has something to do with hip-hop. [bit.ly/HorseandHipHop]

    EP9: “2021 GA Senate Recap” with Senator Jen Jordan

    Sine Die! The bell has rung and the paper bill confetti has been thrown… the “40 most dangerous days for GA” are over.

    We sat down with Senator Jen Jordan (Jer-dun) to discuss the highs and lows of this session. What bills passed, what bills didn’t and how these will impact our lives for the years to come.

    We also talk about the pending redistricting (read: Gerrymandering) which may be delayed due to the census. [“Redistricting fight gears up in Georgia as census data delay grows” bit.ly/GARedistricting]. We also dive a little deeper into the Voter Suppression Bill (SB202) the real reason why the Republican party wants the power taken away from the Secretary of State - it’s brilliant, it’s ugly and if the courts don’t over turn it - this could literally alter the face of GA politics.

    EP8: "Us and Now" with Rep Shelly Hutchinson

    EP8: "Us and Now" with Rep Shelly Hutchinson

    "If Not Us, Who? If Not Now, When?" This rendition of rabbinic sage Hillel the Elder's quandary is what guides Rep Shelly Hutchinson. Rep Shelly, is a business womxn, a loving mom, a wife and a badass representative.

    The quote is timely, as we sat down with Rep Hutchinson the same night Rep Park Cannon, one of our previous guest, was unlawfully arrested for simply knocking on the door of Gov. Kemp - as he signed the horrendous voter suppression bill into law. It was an emotional evening as the story was developing literally in the middle of the our conversation.

    Rep Shelly is a bold and fierce advocate for the Georgians, but best of all she is just like the rest of us...and it’s good to have everyday people who represent us at the Gold Dome…

    We hope as you listen in to the episodes you are not only learning what goes on at our State Capital but are encouraged to get more involved and perhaps even consider running yourself. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to use to be connected to one of the many phenomenal grassroots organizations who do this work right here in Ga. As always, thank you for listening and enjoy the episode!

Educational, hilarious, important

This is a great resource for people who want to learn more about the nuts & bolts of our democracy in an entertaining way. By no means stuffy or dry, the hosts are clearly knowledgeable and tuned in but also refreshingly candid about all the things they don’t know. And they’re hilarious to boot. Entertaining back & forth, and incredible guests. I learned, laughed, & had a great time.

Accessible!!

This podcast is so helpful! Politics are already confusing and the fact that they are making me understand what’s going on is a huge help. I feel like I can go to the ballot box now with confidence. I feel like I can call my local representation and demand things. The rules of the game have been hidden and this podcast helps to unearth them and make them accessible to everybody!
