We’re talking politics and life in Congress for this week’s episode. Our guest, Todd Zwillich, serves as the Washington Correspondent for PRI & WNYC’s The Takeaway. We caught up with him last week before he went on the air for a “live hit” for The Takeaway.
During our conversation we talked about:
- The polarized nature of our politics;
- Whether the fringes of each party will continue to dictate the conversation;
- The divisions that exist within each party; and,
- A brief preview of the 2016 presidential elections.
I hope you’ll enjoy the conversation.
