    Amber Northern + Daniel Gade Extra

    Amber Northern + Daniel Gade Extra

    Episode 87 of the podcast is jam-packed with a newsmaker interview with Daniel Gade, fresh off his nomination win; Norm Leahy, columnist with The Washington Post, and I discuss in "Shouting Along the James" the recent nomination contests from around the state; and Amber Northern of the Thomas B. Fordham Institute describes the correlation between where you live, your education, and income.



    Also, Norm focuses his column this week on Terry McAuliffe's now unlikely second term and Mark Herring's regrets about not running for governor when he had the chance in 2017. State Sen. Jennifer McClellan and Del. Jennifer Carroll Foy may have spiked both their dreams. Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax likely isn't even a factor.

    Amber Northern gives a great interview detailing why incomes deviate based on education in Virginia. You need to check out their specific info on the commonwealth. There are differences between how NoVA, Richmond, and Hampton Roads relate to advanced education. Her interview begins at the 33:00 mark and lasts for the remainder of the podcast.

    John-Henry Doucette

    John-Henry Doucette

    Episode 85 of the podcast welcomes John-Henry Doucette, publisher, Princess Anne Independent News. Norm Leahy discusses Doug Wilder's plea for us to examine all history.



    In an era where newspapers are closing, changing their print production model, and going more and more online, would you consider starting your own independent, community paper? Our guest this week has done just that. Doucette publishes the community newspaper of The Princess Anne Independent News, a paper that serves the people of southern Virginia Beach and Knotts Island, NC.



    John walks us through why he began the paper, its purpose, and some of the challenges he’s faced. We also discuss some of the major events he has covered, such as the mass shooting last year at the Virginia Beach Municipal Center and how these events have affected his reporting.

    “So, newspapers made a terrible business decision not to sell their content [online] and now people think news is something that magically appears out of the air.”

    Norm Leahy, columnist with The Washington Post, focuses his column this week on the ongoing topic of conversation dominating Virginia's news: statuary. His piece is a fascinating reflection on Virginia's troubled, often white-washed, history.

    Wilder said what’s needed most is “telling the damn truth in all our history about what has happened for the 400 years black people have been here!”

    Rich Anderson

    Rich Anderson

    This week's guest is Rich Anderson. Anderson wants to be the next chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia.



    On the show we talk about his background as an Air Force colonel, member of the House of Delegates, and being an advocate for Veterans and science and technology issues while in the House. But we also talk about how he feels the Republican Party of Virginia needs a refresh, and how he intends to be personally invested to get the job done. This interview was recorded last week.



    Norm Leahy, columnist with The Washington Post, joins me to talk about the unrest currently in Virginia. He writes this week about the violence and challenges that lie ahead toward having a more peaceful union.



    “An open ear is an open heart, and it shows the public that you can do more than just govern.”

    Ben Loyola

    Ben Loyola

    This week's guest is Ben Loyola. Loyola is seeking the Republican nomination in the 2nd Congressional District where he hopes to challenge the incumbent, Congresswoman Elaine Luria.



    Loyola escaped from Cuba as a child, is a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, deployed with the USS John F. Kennedy during Libya’s “Line of Death” claims, and retired from the U.S. Naval Reserves as a captain. He also founded Loyola enterprises, a successful company offering the warfighter state-of-the-art Simulation, Cyber Security, Information Technology, and Knowledge Management for training, analysis, and operations.



    On the show we talk about his amazing history, being a small business owner in today’s economy, lessons learned from his State Senate campaign in 2011 with then-State Sen. Ralph Northam, and how he is the best person to win the nomination and defeat Luria.



    Norm Leahy, columnist with The Washington Post, shares with us the secondary effects of Gov. Northam's new mandatory mask order.
