Shadow Politics

Shadow Politics with U.S. Senator Michael D. Brown
U.S. Senator Michael D. Brown

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.

Guest Biography

When not on the air blessing the village (as she affectionately calls those who listen to during her show “Midday Shenanigans” weekdays 10 am - 2 pm) on WPGC live from the nation's capital, Poet spends her time bringing awareness to issues facing the community she proudly serves. From helping teens and young adults in the foster care system find forever families, to being involved in grassroots community efforts to end gun violence, police brutality as well as body shaming and self-hate.

Taylor serves as an ambassador for the DC Department of Health's "Sex is..." campaign aimed at creating safe spaces for youth to discuss and learn about sexual health with self-appointed trusted adults. She also sits on the Board of Directors of Safe Shores DC - The Child Advocacy Center that helps children and families affected by trauma and violence.

Poet learned early on that it takes hard work, dedication and blind faith to not only accomplish your dreams, but to live them.
