Government for everybody

Because it's no fun to feel overwhelmed or uninformed.

Politics affects our lives in countless ways but it can often feel complicated and impossible to understand.
 Misinformation is a threat to our democracy, but together we can combat lies and conspiracy theories with the truth. 

How do we recognize bias and learn to come together to find common ground?

My mission is simple: I aim to cover daily headlines, break down national political coverage and biases, and extract the facts.

With over a decade of experience in government and law education, I’m committed to using nonpartisan facts as my guide. I break down tough-to-follow political headlines and events through daily news briefings, thought-provoking conversations, historical context, and humor.

My straightforward approach has helped me reach hundreds of thousands of followers, fellow Governerds who are looking for truth and peace in a political climate that is often fraught with lies and divisive rhetoric.
