Amazing

Great work, Jon! Just finished the series and I’ve learned some and have some newfound hope for the Democratic Party.

Thanks, but Climate Change

Thanks Jon for embarking on a meaningful project that has, among other things, sparked a lot of dialogue between me and my wife. We listened to nine episodes on long car rides to and from the beach this week. We are both Democrats and live just outside the DC line, but not in political jobs. The series is overall excellent and covers so many issues so well.

I don’t ever comment on podcasts, but I wanted to do it here for two reasons: to commend the contribution and also raise the gap in coverage on climate change. In episode 9, there is a great opportunity for you to raise the idea of a stimulus package involving green industry as a way to address myriad issues covered in the Pod: income inequality, transition to new economy, job creation, national security, even racial justice. It can be used to engage Silicon Valley and American innovation in a positive way. I’m surprised at the absence of this in your otherwise good whiteboard of ideas in that episode and more generally.

I am at a loss to understand the lack of focus and the lost opportunity in the party right now on this topic. There is a moment for Dems to seize here to address so many interrelated issues. I hope you and PSA will continue to push on that issue as you move ahead.

PS - I like the ads, and already have Quip - now looking into Swell

Hilarious

2 stars: 1 star because it’s entirely one sided for Democrat candidates as people - not as policy. But the 2nd star is deserved because it’s brilliant and comical at the same time. Listening to it you get a deep sense of such heartbreak with the loss of the 2016 election. It reminds me of when we were attacked in 9/11 and the country was in great remorse - but this wasn’t a terrorist attack. This was a Democrat LOSS of presidential election.
