Episode 67: Hammar Nails It

37 minutes

1/30/2019-- With Jenn living it up at Sundance, Steve is joined by guest host, friend of the pod and #mapoli enthusiast Sam Hammar. The two sit down to talk about the future of Massachusetts politics, and who better to offer their thoughts and predictions than a trio of thinkers and insiders from across the political spectrum?

Ed Lyons, Massachusetts GOP insider, is hopeful but unconvinced that the GOP will see much success in 2020, especially given the election of ultra-conservative Jim Lyons as Chairman.

Jonathan Cohn of Progressive Massachusetts recounts the success of progressives in the midterm elections and looks ahead to the items topping the progressive agenda for this legislative session.

Nina Liang, Executive Director of Emerge Massachusetts explains how the organization equips women with the tools to run for office. Plus, she emphasizes the importance of this action when, right now, women make up only 29 percent of the Massachusetts governing body.
