WhyPartisan is a weekly conversation between two friends and political junkies. Paul Martin, lifetime Republican, and Kristen Howerton, an enthusiastic democrat, try to figure out what a civil discourse about politics looks like. From social justice issues to the differences between the two parties, from current political hot topics to the intersection of race, religion, and public policy, Kristen and Paul delve into all aspects of the political arena, bringing a dose of humor and vulnerability to the conversation.

Politics for the Layman

Politics make me uncomfortable and I think I might even break out into hives during prolonged exposure to it but this podcast is perfect for me. The episodes are short enough that I don’t feel overwhelmed, the conversation is civil and brings both sides of the political spectrum, and gives information that is current to what is going on in the political arena in terms that the most basic person can understand. I appreciate the discourse between Paul and Kristen as they talk openly, honestly, vulnerably, and even humorously about topics that they agree and disagree on. It helps me feel somewhat informed about a topic that I usually shy away from and gives me more perspective on the political arena as a whole. Keep up the good work, guys!
