March 18, 2016 / by , / 0 Comment

The National Podcast is back to discuss all thing politics, culture, and Boss with special guest Brendan Flynn! You can subscribe to the show on iTunes or Stitcher, and/or stream it on SoundCloud as well.

In episode 7 of The National Podcast, Jon makes a call to the Podcast Host Bullpen and is joined by his old friend Brendan Flynn. Jon and Brendan explore the enticing possibility of a contested Republican convention and the RNC’s continued denial that Donald Trump is going to be their nominee (2:30), Hillary Clinton’s enduring trust issues (19:50), and how the Democrats can avoid alienating the most liberal wing’s of the party (34:40). Moving away from politics, Jon and Brendan also touch upon the hit Broadway musical “Hamilton” and their complicated feelings about the cultural conversation it has sparked (42:25), before introducing a new segment, “Boss or Not Boss”, in which Jon determines the Boss-ness of various people, objects, and locations, such as Oscar Isaac, hoverboards, and UFC gyms (57:50).

As always you can listen in on Soundcloud, iTunes, or Stitcher, send any questions you’d like to see answered on the next episode to editors@nationalave.com, and be sure and let us know what you think so far — by far the coolest part of the pod so far has been hearing everybody’s responses to it.
