Shadow Politics with Senator Michael D Brown
Guest, Leigh McGowan, PoliticsGirl
Jumpstarting a Celebration of Women in Politics in Honor of Women's History Month - PoliticsGirl - She Wants Us to "Know, Grow & Change"! Politics has never been more divided in America. PoliticsGirl (Leigh McGowan) is a self-described "Political junkie who believes in truth, facts and the American experiment." She invests a good deal of time speaking to Americans of all ages and political persuasions advising them to pay more attention and get involved in our political process. A rising social media influencer, Leigh will tell us how this fame all started for her. Leigh will tell us what we need to do to get engaged. Please join me for this interesting and provocative discussion with a social media star!
PoliticsGirl is a daily TikTok/IG/Twitter rant on politics and the world as well as an easy-to-understand weekly podcast aimed at educating and inspiring voters to reengage with the political process. From understanding the issues, the candidates, and the workings of government to the rebuilding and restructuring of our political system so we can have a stronger, more representational, enlightened electorate and a kinder, more tolerant, more informed country.
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.
