In brief: My regular spot with Hal Sparks on WCPT Radio, Chicago!


The most important message from today’s podcast: VOTING MATTERS, so FindYourFuckingPollingPlace and share with your networks so they know where to vote as well. If you’re disillusioned with national politics, I get it. That just makes your local school board, state representatives, etc. MORE important.

Hal and I talked about SO much related to voting and elections. There are pile of links and additional resources in the blog extras at I’m including the links to the on-air references below, but to get the extra write-ups and context, check out the full podcast notes on my blog.
