She talks too fast and this podcast just stresses me out. I listened to a few episodes and have to bail out because the topics and her tone of voice increases my anxiety.

Claims to cut through the rhetoric, but all the show covers is rhetoric, no solutions, just bashing political opposition for not going along with their plan. Hard Pass.

Description

American Democracy is not promised to us and, with all the forces working against it, saving it will take a level of work most people aren’t ready for. The Politics Girl Podcast is here to give people a reason to care and a reason to fight. Our goal is to inspire. To instill in people a true understanding of what this country COULD be, if the right people were fighting for it, and what it WILL be if they don’t. It’s a political podcast yes, but more than that, it’s a podcast about America’s potential, where one passionate, and slightly mouthy, immigrant attempts to motivate the country to become what it promised to be but, so far, has yet to become. You’ll leave more knowledgeable, more engaged, and more sure that you, personally, can make a difference to the future of American democracy. Everyone’s got a little time for that right? Subscribe for new episodes every Tuesday. We’re in a fight for our country. We sure as hell better know what we’re fighting for. xo

Let’s Talk Politics and Religion (PG:CC with John Pavlovitz)
2963
Today’s PoliticsGirl: Candid Conversation is with John Pavlovitz, writer, pastor & activist. John is the author of several best-selling books and the wildly popular blog “Stuff that Needs to be Said”. A 25-year veteran of church ministries, John is kind of a bit of an anomaly in today’s Christian communities with his deep commitment to equality, diversity, and justice—and his ability to question Christianity from the inside out. We talk about how to deal with the rising hate of the Christian far right, what do do with friends and family we feel are lost to the faith and how to connect with people at a time that is both a “constitutional crisis and a family emergency”. We all need some little calm perspective and John is deeply gifted at that. Enjoy.   Guest social: https://johnpavlovitz.com Twitter: @johnpavlovitz Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/johnpavlovitzofficial Instagram: @johnpavlovitz Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/John-Pavlovitz/e/B0768J9N6Z%3Fref=dbs_a_mng_rwt_scns_share   Please RATE and SUBSCRIBE so we can grow the show, open the dialogue, and inspire change moving forward!   All show links here!: https://linktr.ee/politicsgirl   Thank you to today’s sponsors! www.athleticgreens.com/politicsgirl www.smith.ai promocode: PoliticsGirl www.blinkist.com/politicsgirl Learn more about your ad choices.

Abortion is Over: Overturning Freedom
2801
After a copy of Justice Alito‘s draft majority opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health leaked to Politico. The draft, confirmed as authentic by Chief Justice Roberts, in very clear terms overturns both Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey fundamentally ending the constitutional right to abortion in America. This is a hinge point in the history of America and it can not be understated what a seismic shift this is for the court to overturn 50 years of legal precedent. We talk about what we know, what we should expect and what we can do.  Please RATE and SUBSCRIBE so we can grow the show, open the dialogue, and inspire change moving forward!   All my links here!: https://linktr.ee/politicsgirl   Thank you to today’s sponsors! www.smith.ai - enter code PoliticsGirl www.athleticgreens.com/politicsgirl www.blinkist.com/politicsgirl www.masterworks.art/politicsgirl The PoliticsGirl Podcast is a Meidas Touch original podcast produced by Happy Warrior Entertainment.   Source Notes: https://www.politicsgirl.com/episode-025-source-notes Learn more about your ad choices.

The Attack on Public Education
3688
Education has become a hot button topic in America. From school closings due to the pandemic, to the war on masks, to the endless talk of CRT, “parent’s rights” and the banning of books and discussions of LGBTQ issues, the Republicans, never one to let a good crisis go to waste, have found a way to capitalize on the issue to get the results they want - the Democrats, not so much. So, today we’re going to talk about public education in America and how our politics are poised to completely reconfigure what it looks like depending on which road we take.   Please RATE and SUBSCRIBE so we can grow the show, open the dialogue, and inspire change moving forward!   All my links here!: https://linktr.ee/politicsgirl   Thank you to today’s sponsors!   https://www.stamps.com Promocode: PoliticsGirl https://www.betterhelp.com/politicsgirl https://www.calm.com/politicsgirl https://www.creditkarma.com/Loanoffers   Special Thanks to Holly Shuter and Julia Lee Stander for their research assistance.   The PoliticsGirl Podcast is a Meidas Touch original podcast produced by Happy Warrior Entertainment.   Source Notes: https://www.politicsgirl.com/episode-024-source-notes Learn more about your ad choices.

What Can We Do About Guns? – PG:CC with Shannon Watts
2877
Today’s PoliticsGirl: Candid Conversation is Shannon Watts, founder of Mom’s Demand Action, the largest grassroots group fighting gun violence in America. We talk about what it takes to make a difference, the power of grassroots action and the power of numbers. The majority of America wants common sense gun legislation. Why can’t we get it? Or can we? And what can you do to help? It’s a terrific conversation with a brilliant, passionate advocate. I think you’ll find yourself feeling inspired. Even if it’s just to further the conversation.   Guest social: Instagram: http://instagram.com/shannonrwatts/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/shannonrwatts Book: https://fightlikeamother.org   https://momsdemandaction.org TEXT: “READY” to 64433 to join a Moms Demand Action chapter in your area! https://www.everytown.org https://emergeamerica.org    Please RATE and SUBSCRIBE so we can grow the show, open the dialogue, and inspire change moving forward!   All show links here!: https://linktr.ee/politicsgirl Thank you to today’s sponsors!  https://www.littlepassports.com/politicsgirl https://www.thirdlove.com/politicsgirl  https://athleticgreens.com/politicsgirl     Learn more about your ad choices.

Are Republicans in Bed with Russia?
3469
Conservatives are usually very committed to the idea of patriotic unity when it comes to foreign enemies, but this version of the Republican Party is different. The party of Reagan now seems closer to the party of Putin. Even an all out war being waged against freedom and democracy can’t seem to bring people to stand with the American president, if that president happens be Democrat. It’s almost as if Republicans have chosen to take the counter position, even if that means supporting Russia in a war with America. How did we get here, where is this party going and what can we do about it?   Please RATE and SUBSCRIBE so we can grow the show, open the dialogue, and inspire change moving forward!   All my links here!: https://linktr.ee/politicsgirl   Thank you to today’s sponsors! https://www.stamps.com - code: PoliticsGirl https://brightland.co/pages/welcome-to-the-golden-state-brightland?utm_source=podcast&utm_medium=adopter&utm_campaign=POLITICSGIRL https://www.blinkist.com   The PoliticsGirl Podcast is a Meidas Touch original podcast produced by Happy Warrior Entertainment.

A Brief History of How We Got Here
3828
There are so many things we think we know but we don’t really know. When you hear someone use the word communism, socialism, Marxism, fascism…do you know what they mean? Or do you just have a general idea? Where did these ideas even come from? How did our governments evolve? What’s an aristocracy, a democracy, a kleptocracy? We keep talking about oligarchs…What’s an oligarchy? How is it different than a plutocracy? What is going on in the world and how did we get here? Honestly, this pod started as a an extended “I don’t think that word means what you think it means” and turned into a brief history of the world. But, I came out of the research understanding things so much better than I did before, and I hope you’ll come out of listening to this pod feeling the same way.   Please RATE and SUBSCRIBE so we can grow the show, open the dialogue, and inspire change moving forward!   All my links here!: https://linktr.ee/politicsgirl   Thank you to today’s sponsors!   http://www.smith.ai http://www.AthleticGreens.com/politicsgirl http://www.LittlePassports.com/politicsgirl   The PoliticsGirl Podcast is a Meidas Touch original podcast produced by Happy Warrior Entertainment.   Source Notes: https://www.politicsgirl.com/episode-020-source-notes   Special Thanks to Holly Shuter for her research assistance.

Today’s PoliticsGirl: Candid Conversation is with esteemed epidemiologist, and Public Health expert Dr. Eric Feigl-Ding. As BA.2 decimates China and takes over Europe, it’s clear that no matter how much we want to be done with Covid, Covid isn’t done with us. Dr. Feigl-Ding and I talk how we got here, what’s really happening, and what to look for next. It’s a great conversation with a brilliant mind about a situation we can’t avoid.

PG: CC with New York Governor Kathy Hochul
2394
In less than a year Governor Hochul has gone from Governor by default, after the abrupt resignation of Governor Andrew Cuomo, to leading gubernatorial candidate for New York’s November’s election. Born and bred in upper New York State, Governor Hochul is lawyer, a mother and lifetime public servant, Governor Hochul is also a tireless advocate for women’s rights and women in leadership. She stepped up to the plate when opportunity called, and she’s a big proponent of more women feeling the confidence to do the same. Governor Hochul makes the argument that Democrats must, and can, protect our majority in government and that we need to reach out to anyone who believes in democracy and the American experiment to fight for values that are currently under attack. Governor Hochul really seems to be the real deal. A leader who believes in listening, collaboration and learning from others. She’s also not afraid to get scrappy if the moment calls for it. As Governor Hochul said, “I’m hardwired to help other people, and I’m in a position to do something about it.” Shouldn’t we all have leaders who feel that same pull?  Twitter Governor Hochul: @KathyHochul Please RATE and SUBSCRIBE so we can grow the show, open the dialogue, and inspire change moving forward!   All my links here!: https://linktr.ee/politicsgirl   Thank you to today’s sponsors!   http://www.Stamps.com Promocode: politicsgirl http://www.BetterHelp.com/politicsgirl http://www.SunBasket.com/politicsgirl   The PoliticsGirl Podcast is a Meidas Touch original podcast produced by Happy Warrior Entertainment.   Source Notes: https://www.nytimes.com/2022/02/16/nyregion/kathy-hochul-governor.html https://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/597745-hochul-cuomo-neck-and-neck-in-hypothetical-governor-primary-poll https://gothamist.com/news/lawmakers-look-to-halt-hochuls-penn-station-project-until-funding-questions-are-resolved https://www.masterclass.com/articles/what-does-a-governor-do#what-are-the-responsibilities-of-a-governor https://www.politico.com/news/2021/09/29/the-fifty-women-governors-499533 https://www.governor.ny.gov/about-governor-hochul https://www.politico.com/news/2022/02/17/hillary-clinton-backs-hochul-00009922 https://www.nytimes.com/2022/02/17/nyregion/kathy-hochul-democratic-nomination.html https://www.syracuse.com/politics/2022/02/hochul-gets-democratic-party-endorsement-for-governor-fortifies-frontrunner-status.html Learn more about your ad choices.

Trump/Russia/Ukraine: All Pieces of the Same Puzzle
2745
Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is not some standalone crisis that started in late February, but rather a much bigger picture that’s coming together. A picture made up of hundreds of puzzle pieces that tell a story. A story of greed, power and ambition. A story of lawlessness and fraud. As story of weakness, and yes, a story of treason. We might never know everything that happened, but we can start by acknowledging what we do know as it comes into focus. We can no longer refuse to see what is right in front of us simply because we wish it wasn’t true. Intellectual honesty demands we see these connections so we can become singularly focused on defeating Putin and his anti-democratic coalition worldwide, even if many of his collaborators are American citizens themselves.   Please RATE and SUBSCRIBE so we can grow the show, open the dialogue and inspire better change moving forward!   All my links here!: https://linktr.ee/politicsgirl Thank you to today’s sponsors! http://www.Blinkist.com/politicsgirl http://www.AthleticGreens.com/politicsgirl http://www.Masterworks.art/politicsgirl   The PoliticsGirl Podcast is a Meidas Touch original podcast produced by Happy Warrior Entertainment.  Special Thanks to Julia Lee Stander for her research assistance.

PG:CC with Congressman Adam Schiff
1996
California Congressman Adam Schiff, Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Member of the January 6th Select Committee and one of the Lead Impeachment Managers for the first impeachment of Donald Trump, joins us to share insight on the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Congressman Schiff notes that what we’re seeing in Ukraine is not a new war. This is all part and parcel of what started with Putin a long time ago and we should prepare ourselves for it to get worse before it gets better. But he has faith in NATO, in America, and in our current leadership and he reminds us that one of the best ways to protect democracy around the world is to make sure we continue to protect it here at home.

SCOTUS: A Question of Legitimacy
3296
The current, far right, conservative make up of the Supreme Court clearly has an agenda, and it’s terrifying for the legitimacy of our rule of law and way of life. So today we’re going to talk about the Supreme Court, its importance to American society, it’s capture by the far right and what, if anything, can be done to save it from itself. I want to be clear, this is a completely destructive situation and pretending any of this is business as usual will be America’s undoing. In fact, ignoring it is how we got in this position in the first place. Please RATE and SUBSCRIBE so we can grow the show, open the dialogue and inspire better change moving forward!

Making Sense of Inflation
2812
Inflation is an obvious problem in America right now. The cause, however, is little less obvious. We have a supply chain problem due to the pandemic, but we also have companies recording record profits, and one whole political party who would rather weaponize inflation than solve it. I’m no financial expert but when this many people are talking about the same thing, it’s important for us to at least understand the broad strokes so we’re dialed in and asking the right questions.

PG:CC with American Strategist, Steve Schmidt
3303
Active and prolific Republican communications and PR strategist for most of his career. Schmidt worked on the George W Bush presidential campaign, the Schwarzenegger campaign for California Governor, and ran John McCain’s presidential campaign in 2008. Schmidt was the Vice Chair at Edelman PR and a political analyst for MSNBC. A founding member of the Lincoln Project, a group founded to campaign against Donald Trump, Schmidt officially left the Republican party in 2018 saying, “Today’s GOP has become a danger to our democracy and our values. The Republican Party is an organized conspiracy for the purposes of maintaining power for self-interest, and the self-interest of its donor class. It's no longer dedicated to American democracy.” And for that, I couldn’t agree more.

The Problem with the Media
2731
Between Tucker Carlson doing an entire prime time segment on the brown M&M's shoes, to The New York Times printing deceptive clickbait titles and op-eds from known liars because they think it’ll sell, to major corporations systematically buying up and dismantling our entire media structure in the shadows, something has clearly gone wrong with media in America. This episode takes a look at how our media got off track, what we should be looking out for, and why we should be demanding better laws, stronger repercussions and more personal accountability.

PG:CC with Lt. Colonel Alexander Vindman and Rachel Vindman
3241
Alexander Vindman was the Director for European Affairs for the National Security Council under Donald Trump and the military officer who reported the now infamous phone call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky that led to the first of Donald Trump’s two impeachments. Vindman is a military expert in all things Ukraine/Russia and his wife Rachel, a popular writer and podcaster, fills in the civilian perspective. We talk the threat of war, Russia/NATO and America’s role in it all. Whether we end up with war, or fingers crossed, it can be avoided, Vindman wants us to take Russia’s threat of invasion seriously. As we both agree, democracies worldwide deserve to be protected. Autocrats are seeing how far they can push, and we have to show them we have the stomach to push back.   Please RATE and SUBSCRIBE so we can grow the show, open the dialogue and inspire better change moving forward!

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki joins us today for our new segment PG:CC to discuss where we’re at at the one year mark of the Biden Administration.

The Rise of Autocracy
3079
The autocrats of the world are on the rise and one party in America seems more than happy to join their club. We need a resurgence of democracy, not only at home but around the world or those who would seek to sink the west will finally succeed and the values and human rights that we have come to take for granted will be a thing of the past. Stick with me, so you know where we are and we can point our way in a better direction. I say all of this not to upset you, but to prepare you. We have to accept the reality of the problem if we’re going to have the courage to solve the problem. We will either be the heroes of democracy or the victims of its demise. The choice is ours.

Democracy Must Be Protected
2572
Democracy is not doomed. We can fight for it. But the first step is to acknowledge we HAVE to fight for it. To recognize the reality of what CAN happen, and accept what WILL happen, if we don’t all work together to fix what’s broken. Democracy is under attack and it’s under attack, not from outside forces, but from one of the two major parties right here in the US. This is an unprecedented crisis that must be met with unified resistance. We are at the tipping point. We must make sure enough of us tip the direction in democracy’s favor.

Protect our Vote
3189
The right to vote in America is under attack. The Republicans, and the dark moneyed powers who fund them, have made a calculated decision to rig the elections in their favor to regain and retain power. Between redistricting, partisan gerrymandering, voter suppression laws and criminal intimidation Republicans have decided to abandon the fundamental right to a free and fair election and if the Democrats don’t do something about it while they can, we could easily lose the country forever to this coup enabling, autocratic leaning, increasingly criminal group of self dealers, and our country deserves better.  Please rate and subscribe so we can grow the show, open the dialogue and inspire better change moving forward!

American Coup
2937
Based on the recent powerpoint presentation, text messages and correspondence that Donald Trump’s Chief of Staff, Mark Meadows, released to the January 6th Bipartisan Select Committee, we can now see, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that the 45th President of the United States, in collusion with his team and current sitting members of Congress deliberately attempted to overthrow the Government of the United States and end American Democracy as we know it. The plot was premeditated, is ongoing, and includes active military personal, white house staff and prior executive branch members. This is the story of the frickin’ century and if we don’t fix what’s going on those who tried this once will, no doubt, try it again.  Please rate and subscribe so we can grow the show, open the dialogue and inspire better change moving forward!

The Art of Obstruction
2380
America needs to accept the Republican Party no longer plays for Team Democracy. The have chosen the Democrat’s failure over America’s success. They are willing to trade American lives, the economy and our place in world to get themselves back in power and, once there, they’ll consolidate that power to undermine our institutions until the America we know is no longer. There is a rise of autocracy in the world. The Republican Party is part of that rise.  Please rate and subscribe so we can grow the show, open the dialogue and inspire better change moving forward!

The Death of Roe
1830
The court that Trump built seems poised to set women’s rights back a century with the overturning of Roe v. Wade. We talk about the history of a woman’s right to choose, the fundamental dishonesty of the pro-life movement, the myth that the religious right has always been anti-abortion, and the threat this decision will have, not only on women’s rights, but on the legitimacy of the Supreme Court itself.

Don’t Try to Out-Fascist the Fascists
1560
It is a frustrating time. Most of us are losing our minds with the lack of accountability for Trump & Co. We’re mad at the Democrats for not moving faster and doing more. We’re mad at the DOJ for seemingly doing nothing. We’re mad that it feels like we’re the only ones calling for justice and we want results like, yesterday. But, as Teri Kanefield says, “It’s important we don’t fight autocracy with autocracy” because “if we fight like them, we will end up like them” and then our democracy will be well and truly gone. People need to channel their anxiety into productive action. At the end of the day, there is no magic bullet. The only way to save democracy is with more democracy. If we want to live in a democratic, rule of law society we must uphold the values of that society even when abandoning them would be so much more efficient.  www.terikanefield.com Please rate and subscribe so we can grow the show, get more guests and inspire more change moving forward!

The Republican Party You Knew Is Gone
1708
Enough of the spin, the depressing headlines & the bad poll numbers. By almost every discernible metric, the Democrats are actually doing incredibly well.  We talk about the signed bipartisan Infrastructure Bill, the biggest investment in our country in over 50 years; the Build Back Better Act, that could be the greatest social spending bill in decades; and, we talk in depth about the party that voted AGAINST all of that because they’ve chosen Democratic failure over American success. We question who the Republican Party has become as they’re no longer attempting to govern, but setting up to rule, and based on which voices they’re abandoning and which they’re elevating, it appears the future under the GOP will look a lot more like Hungary than America. If we’re going to be ready to fight for our democracy, we must stop falling for the drama.

Introduction to Politics Girl: Why you should get in the fight
1223
Leigh gives you some background on where she comes from, why she’s doing this, and why she thinks you should care.  We talk about the danger of General Michael Flynn’s public call for one religion in America, churches increasing involvement in politics, and the danger our democracy faces right now. We touch on the Kyle Rittenhouse case and the current lack of accountability for a certain subset of the population and we get really honest about how serious the problems we face are, so we can get ourselves into the right headspace to fight. Unfortunately, we don’t have the luxury of sitting on the sideline for one more day. 2022 will be a tipping point for America, and sometimes it just takes an outsider to come in and remind you what you should be fighting for.

The PoliticsGirl Podcast Trailer (Politics Girl)
84
American Democracy is not promised to us and, with all the forces working against it, saving it will take a level of work most people aren’t ready for. The PoliticsGirl Podcast is here to give people a reason to care and a reason to fight. Our goal is to inspire. To instill in people a true understanding of what this country COULD be, if the right people were fighting for it, and what it WILL be if they don’t. It’s a political podcast yes, but more than that, it’s a podcast about America’s potential, where one passionate, and slightly mouthy, immigrant attempts to motivate the country to become what it promised to be but, so far, has yet to become. You’ll leave more knowledgeable, more engaged, and more sure that you, personally, can make a difference to the future of American democracy. Everyone’s got a little time for that right? Subscribe for new episodes every Tuesday. We’re in a fight for our country. We sure as hell better know what we’re fighting for. xo Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
