Talk Show Program Information
Shadow Politics is a grass roots talk show giving a voice to the voiceless. For more than 200 years the people of the Nation's Capital have ironically been excluded from the national political conversation. With no voting member of either house of Congress, Washingtonians have lacked the representation they need to be equal and to have their voices heard. Shadow Politics will provide a platform for them, as well as the millions of others nationwide who feel politically disenfranchised and disconnected, to be included in a national dialog .
We need to start a new conversation in America, one that is more inclusive and diverse and one that will lead our great nation forward to meet the challenges of the 21st century. At Shadow Politics, we hope to get this conversation started by bringing Americans together to talk about issues important to them. We look forward to having you be part of the discussion so call in and join the conversation. America is calling and we're listening… Shadow Politics is about America hearing what you have to say. It's your chance to talk to an elected official who has spent more than 30 years in Washington politics. We believe that if we start a dialog and others add their voices we will create a chorus. Even if those other politicians in Washington don't hear you — Senator Brown will. He's on a mission to listen to what America has to say and use it to start a productive dialog to make our democracy stronger and more inclusive. If we are all part of the solution we can solve any problem.

Host Profile, Senator Michael D. Brown
Over the past 33 years Senator Brown has been involved in many national and local political campaigns, including six Presidential campaigns. He has also been involved in the past ten consecutive Democratic National Conventions including being an Obama super-delegate in 2008 and 2012. Last November he was reelected with 207,000 votes, that's more votes than eight other United States Senators who are now serving in congress. In addition, he was on the staff of the Democratic National Committee and was a community activists and neighborhood commissioner in his hometown of Washington, DC. Senator Brown is a graduate of the University of Maryland.
In 2008 Barack Obama said that, Even without a vote, Senator Brown has always been a strong advocate for the rights of DC residents.
As a shadow senator, Brown receives no pay from the government, receives no budget from the government, and cannot vote on matters before the Senate. While he does not have an office in the United States Senate, the Government of the District provides him with an office in City Hall. His office is totally funded by contributions from DC taxpayers. Brown lobbies the United States Senate and the United States House of Representatives on behalf of the citizens of the District in their attempt to gain full representation in Congress, self-determination, and eventually admittance to the union as a state. As shadow senator, Brown also works with the District's delegate, mayor, and council to advance the interest of local residents on Federal issues. Brown is a member of the Democratic Party.

Talk Show Feedback
Really enjoyed your guest. Dr. Miller last Sunday - what is going on with education today is a hot topic indeed. Thanks for covering some aspect of it.
Dear Senator Brown,
I'm an avid listener and I want to say thanks for another great show this past Sunday. I am sorry to hear Senator about your mishap last week. I hope you will be back in good health in no time. On your show you had mentioned that both you & Kathleen had worked for President Carter’s campaign. What are the chances of having him on your show for an interview? I would truly enjoy having the two of you interview President Carter & get his perspectives on the current climate in the congress.
As always, thanks again and I look forward to your future shows.
Good afternoon Senator. I have been an avid listener to your show ever since it began. I enjoy the views you share on the topics of the day. And although I might not agree at times I do find them insightful.
I also enjoy the rapport you have with Kathleen & the sense of humor the two of you share.
I thought your show yesterday concerning public education was insightful and informative. I hope you have more shows in the future concerning this topic.
Thanks again & I look forward to more shows from you & Kathleen.
Joe from San Jose, Ca.
