    The Political Nomad with Josh Gillespie Episode 17 feat. Stuart Stevens

    The Political Nomad with Josh Gillespie Episode 17 feat. Stuart Stevens

    Have you ever read a book or watched a movie where you’re rooting for the protagonist and all of the sudden, the protagonist realizes that they have been part of a larger, seemingly more dishonest cause? That the work they’ve done has only pushed their cause into a more foul angle?  This week’s guest is that Protagonist. Stuart Stevens is a legend in political operative circles. For twenty-five years, he was the lead strategist and media consultant for some of the nation’s toughest political campaigns. He’s helped elect governors and senators in half of the 50 states alone. He’s worked for or advised five presidential campaigns with four winning the GOP nomination and two winning the White House. He has even won campaigns in other countries!

    Stuart is also an established author with seven books to his name and his newest is coming out in August and it’s called  "It Was All A Lie: How The Republican Party Became Donald Trump,".

    Politics aside, I want to mention just a couple of non-political items to Stuart’s credit. Stuart has worked on television shows including Northern Exposure, Commander in Chief, and K Street. He also consulted on the 2011 film The Ides of March, which was chosen by the National Board of Review as one of the top ten films of 2011 and he was a Fellow of the American Film Institute.

    Additionally, here are a few links as they relate to this week's show:


    The Toughest Job: William Winter's Mississippi (documentary on Youtube)
    My Confederate Past
    Former Romney strategist Stuart Stevens joins Lincoln Project
    2020 Election: If Republicans care about America, they should vote for Joe Biden
    Pre-Order "It Was All A Lie: How The Republican Party Became Donald Trump,".

    The Political Nomad with Josh Gillespie Episode 16 feat. Sarah Quinlan

    The Political Nomad with Josh Gillespie Episode 16 feat. Sarah Quinlan

    Sarah Quinlan is conservative, pro-life and a feminist. How does that all work? This week on The Political Nomad Sarah turns stereotypical views on their heads.

    Sarah Quinlan has been a lifelong proponent of limited government and viewed the Republican Party as the best vehicle for promoting these beliefs. So she aligned herself with the GOP and voted for the Republican candidate on the ballot in every election until 2016. But that election, like for many of us, marked a watershed moment for her. She has stated that during that election cycle “I realized I could not rely on others to defend and advocate on behalf of the principles I so strongly believe in”. Like maybe some of you Sarah felt politically homeless. This led her to start writing. She began writing for the Buckley Club, became a front-page contributor for RedState in early 2018, and later joined Arc Digital as a columnist. She’s also been published at National Review, the Bulwark, and USA TODAY. Sarah has written prolifically and has touched on topics such as being politically homeless, the plight of women in Trump’s GOP, how feminism connects to the pro-life movement and conservatism as a whole and more topically recent, why Juneteenth should be considered a national holiday.

    Sarah lives in Virginia, where she works on behalf of free expression and tolerance; She met her husband on twitter; played Division 1 college soccer; and, to the delight of my 11 year old daughter, she’s been in a Taylor Swift music video (for all of a half second).

    Finally, there are few links that I want to mention as they pertain to this week's podcast:


    It’s Time for Pro-Lifers to Change the Culture on Abortion 
    Republicans Should Seek to End the Death Penalty, not Expand It 
    Destiny Herndon-De La Rosa: Why conservatives should oppose the death penalty

    The Political Nomad with Josh Gillespie Episode 15 feat. Mary Anna Mancuso

    The Political Nomad with Josh Gillespie Episode 15 feat. Mary Anna Mancuso

    This week I'm excited to have Mary Anna Mancuso as my guest on The Political Nomad.

    Mary Anna is the founder of PoliticalHype.com a blog that focuses on Florida and National politics from a Millennial perspective. She’s also a media strategist. Now, before you get on my case for having another political insider on the show I think we need to realize that in the political climate of the last four years, a different breed of consultant has arisen. Now if you read Mary Anna’s bio, you’d think that she’s just another red meat Republican. But if you knew my resume, you’d think the same thing, yet here were are and I’m hosting a podcast trying to broaden the political conversation. I think that’s where Mary Anna is too. That said, her experience is very impressive. She’s worked on Lindsey Graham’s presidential campaign as a social media strategist and made her mark in Florida politics while working the reelection campaign for Florida Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater in 2014 and serving as Deputy Communications Director for Congressman Connie Mack’s U.S. Senate campaign in 2012. She’s also a veteran talking head of national tv and radio.

    There are few important links I want to mention as they pertain to this week's podcast:


    When Mary Anna covered the 2008 Republican National Convention for Fox News she was able to interview a few of John McCain's fellow P.O.W.'s. Those interviews left an indelible mark on her life. Check them out!
    Over on PoliticalHype.com, Mary Anna has a few articles definitely worth checking out.
    The Joe Biden Veepstakes: 6 Vice Presidential Hopefuls
    OP-ED: What can the climate movement learn from the COVID crisis?
    Mary Anna talks about Florida’s reopening and vote-by-mail

    Follow Mary Anna on Youtube. She's a regular talking head on local and national television as well as providing regular political commentary. Follow her today!
    Follow her on the other socials as well: Twitter: @MaryAnnaMancuso and "The Gram" @maryanna_mancuso.
    Finally, Mary Anna surprised me this week by creating her own playlist which she calls her "Trail Mix" (I love the title!)

    Mary Anna he still asked me to make her a Road Trip Playlist, but you'll have to subscribe to The Nomad News, the official newsletter of The Political Nomad, to get. that one.

    As usual, The Political Nomad is on all of the major podcasting platforms and the links are in the right hand sidebar. Please feel free to listen there and give this episode 5 stars and leave some reviews.

    In the meantime, feel free to leave me comment on Facebook, on Twitter, or contact me here right on my site.
