Election Day is next Tuesday, November 3rd.
It cannot be ignored - How the US will vote next week will have global consequences. What does the outcome look like as we see it just before Election Day, and how on Earth did we get here to this one single decision that will shape what feels like everything for generations to come? In our search for understanding (and peace of mind) we pose all of our concerns, worries, and questions to one of the leading experts in US politics and US climate policy, John Podesta.
John Podesta served as White House Chief of Staff to President Bill Clinton, served as an advisor to President Barack Obama, and was Chair of Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign. With 52 years in presidential politics, and with the experience of running a campaign against Republican candidate Donald Trump, we sit down for an insightful view on what chances Democratic candidate Joe Biden has of winning the presidency this time around, as well as a forecast of what we should expect next week on Election Day.
Stick around after the conversation to hear a musical performance from the band OK Go!
