#Election2016 Catharsis Part 1 w/@RVoronaCote — #KatieSpeakShow Ep47 07/30/2016

In brief: I don’t cover the political horserace much on this show. But it’s convention season and this election is particularly important thanks to a likely four Supreme Court appointments under the next president. So, I have a two-part election catharsis for those who are less than enthused, tired of the misogyny, ready for November to get here already — and yet still engaged. This week: part one with Rachel Vorona Cote; next week: part two with Aja Barber!

Note: This show is available to stream and download for free so it can be accessible for everyone. If you’re able, consider becoming a supporter for as little as $1/month at PATREON or making a one-time donation through PAYPAL. Thank you!
