This is the good stuff
After engaging with this podcast I am pleased to see that the fight for women's equality in all places is not dead. The Senator restores my faith and galvanizes me to the cause.
If the first episode is any indication, this podcast will be filled with great conversation that is muted by the fact that both Gillibrand and Steinem lack the courage of their convictions to folow through their beliefs wth actions. Both betrayed the younger generation of feminist causes by endorsing Clinton for reaons that sound like they were written by Correct the Record. It's sad when your heros aren't as brave as you had hoped.
A Powerful Communicator
Senator Gillibrand is not only a powerhouse legislator, but she is an excellent podcaster and interviewer. She has a very engaging style and weaves in many of her own experiences into the story being told by the interviewee. With Senator Gillibrand's considerable pull, being a sitting senator from New York, there should be some great guests.
I'm a huge fan of Senator Gillibrand, she is a tireless advocate for reform of the military-justice system. Those who are willing to give their lives in defense of our Nation deserve the best and fairest system of justice. I hope she has guests on to discuss this important issue.
