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

“The 15 best political podcasts…will help you cut through the noise and focus on what’s important to you.”

“This is a podcast you don’t want to miss.

Chicago City Clerk Anna Valencia is a rising star in important executive, elected office. She’s also a very thoughtful person on the matter of women’s advancement in politics. Listen to her here on the #VoteHerIn podcast. She also shares her great advice in the book, Vote Her In.
Linda Hirshman is the best-selling author of numerous books, including the definitive biography of US Supreme Court Justices, Ginsburg and O’ Connor. She is a powerful voice.

Launched on President’s Day weekend, 2019, the Two Broads Talking Politics podcast includes a segment, co-produced by me, titled: #VoteHerIn. The #VoteHerIn series covers the movement to elect our first Madam President. I guest, along with colleagues and friends, to discuss, for instance: why electing a woman president really matters; how women can win in a misogynistic political culture; what we can learn from the polls and the pundits; the backstories of the women presidential candidates; and the role of men in this movement.

The #VoteHerIn podcast segment is a no-holds-barred discussion, as well as an inspirational call to action. Feel free to send along your suggestions for topics to cover and people to interview.

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.”
