Description

HuffPost congressional reporter Matt Fuller hosts a nonpartisan, four-part series throughout the month of October focused on the midterm elections. Fuller and his guests — including members of Congress, candidates involved in races, partisan operatives, and other reporters — will explore topics including gerrymandering, the shift toward women in the Democratic Party, Nancy Pelosi's influence on races, and Donald Trump’s effect in the midterms and the parties overall. He will drill down on one specific Congressional race each episode and interview the candidates in those races.

This election day, there will be over 250 women on the ballot running for the House and Senate, and after the midterms, there’s likely to be more women in office than ever before. It seems Donald Trump has awoken a female majority that is outraged by the President's words and actions. And if there is a Democratic wave, it’s women who will have likely caused it. This episode, which is the fourth in a four-part series on the midterm elections, features interviews with Rep. Cheri Bustos (R-Ill.), Politico reporter Heather Caygle, Cook Political Report editor Dave Wasserman, Politico Reporter Rachael Bade, HuffPost polling editor Ariel Edwards-Levy, Rep. Dave Brat (R-Va.), and Democratic congressional candidate Abigail Spanberger. The Wave is produced by The Podglomerate.Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
The Trump Effect

The Trump Effect

2018-10-2500:55:191

We explore the effect Donald Trump is having on the midterm elections, the realignment of the parties, and Congress. With Republicans looking to retain the House, we look at how Republicans are navigating questions about Trump and how the President is shifting certain districts into Democratic control. This episode, which is the third in a four-part series on the midterm elections, features interviews with Rep. Eric Swalwell, Rep. Mark Meadows, Politico reporter Jake Sherman, DCCC national press secretary Tyler Law, DCCC Communications Director Meredith Kelly, Guardian reporter Ben Jacobs, former RNC communications director Doug Heye, Politico Reporter Daniel Strauss, HuffPost Reporter Arthur Delaney, Rep.

The Pelosi Question

The Pelosi Question

2018-10-1800:40:494

We explore the question of Nancy Pelosi as the leader of House Democrats. With Democrats looking likely to take back the House, we look at the potential problems she may face in resuming her position as the only woman to ever serve as Speaker of the House. We also explore the history of the “Fire Pelosi” campaign — from its roots at the Republican National Committee in 2010 to the most recent examples of Republicans using questions about Pelosi in 2018 — and examine whether she is still the potent campaign issue Republicans believe her to be. This episode, which is the second in a four-part series on the midterm elections, features interviews with former RNC communications director Doug Heye, Pelosi deputy chief of staff Drew Hammill, Rep. Tim Ryan, Rep. Eric Swalwell, Politico reporter Heather Caygle, Washington Examiner reporter Laura Barron-Lopez, Rep. Conor Lamb, and Rep. Keith Rothfus. The Wave is produced by The Podglomerate. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
Gerrymandering

Gerrymandering

2018-10-1100:39:433

We explore how gerrymandering might limit Democratic pick ups in the House, and we discuss how Republicans targeted state legislatures in 2010 in order to draw better maps for the GOP. We attempt to answer how much of the GOP’s seat advantage is geography, and how much is gerrymandering. This episode, which is the first in a four-part series on the midterm elections, features interviews with Dave Daley, Josh Huder Tyler Law, Doug Heye, Dave Wasserman, Betsy Rader, and Rep. David Joyce.The Wave is produced by The Podglomerate.Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

why do liberals care more about what's between your legs than what's between your ears? it doesn't matter what gender you are. it matters if you're qualified.

Deb Wingert wow you didn't call him racist? surprising that's the typical lib 101 response. I mean you didn't answer his question and you did try and insult him, so I award you 19 social justice points.

Sergio Pabzu lol. you're thick. I never said no one should reply to comments. I was addressing Andrea and the fact that she keeps telling everyone not to leave comments if they haven't listened to the series. who fucking made her boss? and the Russia thing is getting pretty old. it's like you guys totally forgot that Putin made Barry his bitch. Crimea? Red lines? resets? any of that ring a bell? of course not. you can't hear the bells when your head is in the sand.
