Can we look at the top priorities for the new Congress without talking about likability, who curses more, or a dancing video?
Yes we can. On Dastardly Cleverness: Politics Edition it's not about the horse race, or the latest outrage, but how to make politics do what it’s supposed to do: make our lives better, not just more entertaining — or depressing.
In this episode host Spencer Critchley brings brings back a previous guest and introduces a new one. Dastardly Cleverness veteran Zach Friend is an alumnus of the John Kerry and Barack Obama campaigns, the Democratic National Committee, and Congressional staff, and is currently an elected Supervisor in Santa Cruz County, California.
New guest Paul Shone is a Boston-based Democratic political consultant. He's had senior roles on presidential campaigns in nearly every cycle since 1976.
