In Episode 37, Quinn & Brian ask: Why does Congress need a female Air Force Officer / Engineer / Chemistry Teacher / Mom among its ranks? (Possibly our dumbest question yet?)
Our guest is Chrissy Houlahan, a candidate for Pennsylvania District 6 on Nov. 6th. We dig into the very personal reasons she’s running, what’s so special about Pennsylvania, and the first thing she’s going to do when she gets elected. Plus, how did she collect such an impressive list of bona fides?
Chrissy shares some incredibly insightful facts that highlight why this Pennsylvania race is so important – because, as it turns out, when you do your research, you get facts! (It’s one of the firsts time we’ve heard these from a politician, too, so don’t feel too embarrassed if it’s your first time hearing about this.) Chrissy is one of our featured conversations in partnership with 314 Action, an organization working hard to put STEM candidates in office. You can learn more about the organization in our interview with the founder, Shaughnessy Naughton, back in episode 35 and support them at 314action.org.
