Freedom to find out the stuff that governments push to the bottom is key to big change.
And that is where my guest expert, and host of the hit podcast "Congressional Dish" Jennifer Briney, joins us on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots free podcast interview.
She is a lady who is doing stuff very differently from the majority of people that I have on the show.
We have had the life coaches, adventurers, entrepreneurs, sportsman, and authors. We have even had the public speakers, freedom fighters, and dreamers.
But today’s guest is different, as she has found a passion within the reams, tomes and amendments that make up American Politics.
As she says “I startup most mornings ready to spend most of my time reading through the ridiculously long bills that are voted on in US Congress and watching fascinating Congressional hearings. I use my podcast to discuss and highlight corporate influence on the bills. Most Americans, if they pay attention to politics at all, only pay attention to the Presidential election. I think that’s a huge mistake because we voters have far more influence over our representation in Congress, as the Presidential candidates are largely chosen by political party insiders. My passion drives me to inform Americans about what happens in Congress after the elections and prepare them for the effects legislation will have on their lives. I also want to inspire more Americans to vote and run for office.” All fascinating stuff, and I feel it mirrors what happens in the UK too, when we only slide off the sofas, and put our X’s in the boxes when it comes to the big stuff. But what makes it doubly fascinating that with a history of waitressing, saleswoman. and Operations Intern for AVP Pro Beach Volleyball Tour, there was seemingly nothing that indicates a change in this direction? But Im sure we will find out during the show that the truth is very different indeed. So how do you take a passion for the hidden world of politics and convert it into a business, that entertains and inspires the American people that can make a difference, but are unaware of the power they hold? And does she feel more and more frustrated the deeper in she goes, or more and more encouraged that a change is a comin? Well lets find out as we bring onto the show, to start joining up dots, with the one and only Jennifer Briney
