Hey, hi, hello, quick reminder: One of, if not *the* most important presidential elections in United States history is just around the corner. With the coronavirus claiming the lives of over 200,000 Americans, the police continuing to commit deadly acts of racial injustice, and wild fires decimating millions of acres across the west coast, it's not an exaggeration to say that the future of our nation is at stake. Light stuff, I know.
In a little over a month, the American people will cast their votes to decide what they want the next four years to look like—and which commander-in-chief they want to lead us there. It's a Big F*cking Deal. Election years always comes with much excitement and anticipation, and yep, just a smidge of dread. But when executed correctly (and lawfully!!), it can be inspiring to watching Democracy unfold in front of you.
I know what you're thinking: Hunter, I'm *barely* figuring out how to exist in this pandemic-addled world, how am I supposed to keep up with politics right now? Look, I get it: The ~p-word~ can be intimidating. Which is why I put together a list of the best political podcasts to bring you up to speed. These shows will help you navigate the upcoming weeks and enlighten you on how we got here, so that when November 3 rolls around, you'll be able to cast your vote as a super informed member of society.
