Hello everyone! I wanted to take a few minutes and introduce two new contributors to the podcast. With Elizabeth leaving, we knew it would take a lot to fill her shoes - so I recruited two people to help fill the gap - Kelly and Clint. Take a listen to find out more about them!
Kelly is an escapee from the state of Florida. She has always been interested in politics and fighting for whats right. She has an MA in Peace and Conflict Resolution, but her greatest achievement to date is keeping a human alive for over 7 years. She's an ardent listener of books and podcasts and when she's not listening she is definitely talking. In fact, she talks so much that she was asked to talk (semi) professionally on a podcast.
Clint is studying government and history at the University of Texas at Austin, on track to graduating with honors in May 2019. Born in Idaho in 1978 and raised in Texas, he has taken an unconventional path to his current station in life, working in the restaurant industry as a server and bartender for over 20 years before deciding to get serious about life and enrolling in a local community college. He is working towards a career as a civil rights attorney, with particular passions for criminal justice reform, human trafficking issues, and domestic violence cases, and has developed a passion for politics and community service along the way. An avid podcast listener, he is committed to shining a bright light on fake news wherever he can find it, in the hopes that people can at the very least have real, verified facts to base their opinions on. Some of his hobbies include reading biographies, playing poker, and eating way too much popcorn at movie theaters.
Update: Unfortunately Clint was not able to fit the podcast into his schedule, but he is a fan! We hope to hear from Clint in the future and wish him luck on his journey to become a civil rights attorney!
