From Politicon Stage to Podcast

There will be some brilliance, some bull s***, some name calling, and even some bonding as Politicon’s “How The Heck Are We Gonna Get Along!” brings in all sides to find out if our country still has a fighting chance at making it to 2021…and if we’re lucky, even finding some common ground in the process.
