Some days, I’m “press,” when interviewing for the podcast. This day, it was an interview with 2020 Democratic POTUS candidate, US Senator Amy Klobuchar.

Hosted by Two Broads Talking Politics, the #VoteHerIn podcast is a joint production with Two Broads. Every other Wednesday, and in occasional special weekend editions, we explore and share the inspirational and frank guidance of women leaders working in diverse political contexts and with diverse personal stories and experiences. Notably−and throughout this past year of covering the movement to elect our first woman POTUS, the underlying theme of our discussions was the challenge women face in achieving any kind of political power. Now that the 2020 Democratic contest for the presidential nomination is over, it is even clearer just how important this campaign is. So, we continue to explore why electing women to office matters to the future of every American woman and girl, and how to get this done.

Episode 139 was taped shortly after Vote Her In was published, and previews what we cover in the #VoteHerIn podcast.

Here are comments from former First Lady Michelle Obama about why the #VoteHerIn discussion is so important now and every day.

“In light of this last election, I’m concerned about us as women and how we think about ourselves and about each other. . . . What is going on in our heads where we let that happen, you know? . . .When the most qualified person running was a woman and look what we did instead, I mean that says something about where we are. . . . That’s what we have to explore . . . if we still have this crazy, crazy bar for  each other that we don’t have for men . . . if we’re not comfortable with the notion that a woman could be our president compared to what  . . . we have to have that conversation with ourselves as women.”
