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.

PICK A WORKSHOP

Every month I'll host a workshop on the most relevant topics of the day. From understanding the Constitution to headline SCOTUS cases, each workshop is delivered in the style you've come to know and love.

VIEW LIVE OR RECORDED

Jumping in live with other students is the best way to learn, but you can also snag the recordings of live workshops. We add captions to make sure things are accessible.

KNOW WHAT'S UP

The best part is feeling like you understand what's going on, you know how to engage in a thoughtful discussion, and you feel less anxiety. I can't promise you'll be the life of the party, but you can be the most informed.

Join me in tackling misinformation through a more critical lens.

Let’s start a #factrevolution!

With your commitment to understanding the truth, you’ll gain confidence as you consume media and share information with loved ones. Together, we can bring unity and truth to the conversation surrounding our nation’s politics.
