Jason Howell speaks with Brianna Wu, video game developer and Candidate for US House of Representatives in MA District 8 for 2020. They discuss how she got started in tech, surviving the Gamergate harassment, why she's running for Congress, and more.
Interesting statistics about first time congressional candidates. I loved the way she framed her run for congress as something she would do at least twice since an engineer would look at the problem and know that the first time would be a failure, but that a second attempt would be more likely to win.
The South Carolina Republican was once a vehement Trump critic. Now, he’s one of the president’s most ardent supporters.
In an atmosphere of seeming indifference on the part of U.S. law enforcement, a dangerous movement has grown and metastasized.
It’s tremendously painful that the optics of right wing extremism in the Obama administration was used as a means of allowing the alt-right, white supremacists, and neo-Nazis to rise unfettered in the United States. This is worse when one thinks of the death and destruction they have caused in relation to the obscene amounts of money that have been thrown at decreasing international terrorism within our borders.

On today’s episode:
Helene Cooper, who covers the Pentagon for The New York Times.
Here’s what life is like for the soldiers deployed to the southwest borderon a mission that is expected to last until Dec. 15.
Since Election Day, President Trump has tweeted about the caravanexactly once.
The president has seemed to relish the spectacle of being commander in chief, but top Defense Department officials say he has struggled with the role.
He’s seriously deployed troops for a political reason and they’re going to be drawn down before the reason they’re supposed to be there happens?!
This is just the height of stupidity and government waste. Government institutions keep being eroded by Trumps ineptitude and fear-mongering. This is money and deployment help that would have been far better spent in Puerto Rico for the hurricane.
Once, the fight against pornography was the beating heart of the American culture war. Now porn is a ballooning industry—and maybe a harmful one—with no real opponents. What happened?
After a surprise outcome in the primary, the Florida governor’s race is shaping up to be a litmus test for 2020.
Under fire from both parties, the longtime House Democratic leader faces an uncertain political future.
When you look at the numbers (and graphs) the gains in employment under President Trump are essentially a continuation from President Obama‘s last six years in office.
As speaker of the House, the Republican lawmaker should be at the peak of his powers. Instead, he’s walking away.
The lawyer’s self-sure ways and penchant for media spectacle have led some to characterize him as the anti-Trump.
