This episode starts with our post-debate chat on the…

Judy Herschel and the Road to Congress (ep 38)

“Now is the time for people like myself to be very loud… to go out and find those solutions.”  Judy Herschel, her campaign manager Anne Allen, and her scheduler/brother/photographer/jack-of-all-trades John Zincone stop by one of our many mobile studios.  We dig deep into her early life with 6 siblings, how she got a tattoo, how…

POST Debate thoughts with PA 12 Dems (ep33)

Thanks to Clinton County Democratic Chair Joe Wentz and debate organizer Rose Reeder for helping us connect to a fun and smart group of PA-12 Democrats.  We pushed our equipment and engineering chops to the limit here.  The background noise is tweaked, but the audio is not great.  We had a few beers and some…

Lumpenproletariat Robbery, Herschel and Freidenberg Ads, Chip Rises (ep 29)

We start with the odd experience of the ginko tree’s odor.  Then we do uncovered stories in the news (uniformity clause in PA, Regan’s ex-roommate’s crime, rural poverty, the local LWV rule change), compare the new (and first) ads from PA-12 congressional candidates Marc Freidenberg and Judy Herschel, and the problems of Sinclair news’ partisan…

Marino Insults Professors. Judy Herschel visits Milton. Dwayne “Johnny Appleseed” spreads democracy. (19)

We breakdown Rep Marino’s disastrous town hall in Lewisburg.  At 41:45, he needlessly insults Shari Jacobson for being a professor (decide for yourself).  He also offers an utterly incomprehensible defense of his opioid bill. And Judy Hershel’s visit to the Milton Democracy in Action women.  Dwayne tells us about his efforts to spread how-to-run for…

Episode 5- Marino is Toast and Laphroaig

“Post production is the button that says publish.”  We revisit our stellar production values, drink some Scotch, and discuss Tom Marino’s rapid fall from Trumpian grace. How cheap is a Congressperson?  What kinds of sources does Chip have? Will Chris Carney, former Congressman run?  How strong is Judy Herschel?  Will Rick Mirabito run (Lycoming County Commissioner)?…
