#77: Hey, Colorado, Let’s Do the Right Thing in the 2020 U.S. Senate Elections

In Episode 77, Quinn & Brian discuss: How Colorado can do the right thing.

Our guest is Mike Johnston, a Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate from Colorado and the first of a series of conversations about the 2020 elections.

The 2020 Senate elections are going to be really important because flipping it is one of the only protections we might have from another four years of a Republican President – or, if we want to think a little more optimistically, it will allow a new President to make more significant and impactful changes to policies that affect everyone, everywhere. And Colorado is the state that we are most likely to flip seats, so it’s really going to set the tone for the rest of the 2020 elections.

And we like what Mike has done with his political career so far. As a State Senator, he passed major legislation that opened the doors of college to undocumented students, invested in renewable energy, and won a fight with the NRA to pass common sense gun safety. As Mike said when he announced his campaign, “Colorado deserves a U.S. Senator who will run to our hardest problems and show the leadership to pass real progressive policy.”

#67: Is Climate Change Flippable?

In Episode 67, Quinn & Brian ask: Is Climate Change Flippable?

Our guest is Catherine Vaughan, CEO and Co-Founder of Flippable, an organization dedicated to flipping state governments from red to blue. You may not be surprised that Catherine is, indeed, one of the people trying to make a positive change by getting states back on the light side of the Force.

So, when it comes to things like climate change, cancer, clean energy, (the Presidency,) artificial intelligence... are those things Flippable? The answer better be yes, or this is going to be a very depressing episode. So, pay attention today, because the answer just might help us get on the right track to an even better place – not to where we were or are, obviously, because that place was and is not great.
