You Can’t Fight City Hall

August 30, 2018 at 11:55 pm


You can’t fight city hall. It’s a saying, it must be a thing… right? Not so fast. We don’t have luck turning the tide of bad policy because we insert ourselves too late into the process. We tell you stories of how we learned this lesson, from mistakes we made to how we began to win. You can’t show up once the government has already decided what they want to do and have much hope of changing their mind. So how is it done? We spill the blueprint and how you can get involved today to begin to make your voice heard and make some serious change in your community.

Also, Andrew owns up to some previous terrible primary predictions, and we break down some of the local-level races of note.

Have you checked out our Spotify playlist? At the beginning of each episode Jason quotes some song lyrics that have to do with the subject matter of the podcast. Andrew never knows what they are, but now he can… and so can you! We’ve launched the Spotify playlist: “Community Solutions Music From the Podcast“! You can listen to Roundabout from Yes after listing to Episode 30 on Roundabouts… or kick back and enjoy a rocking playlist just for the thrill of it. We add a new song every week. Subscribe and enjoy!

Don’t forget that you can also subscribe to our podcast on iTunes, Google Play, and Spotify, or go out to the PodBabble Podcast Network!
