61. Behind the Scenes of El Candidato, the extraordinary documentary about Bryan Russell
Bryan Russell is the first person with Down Syndrome to ever run for political office anywhere in the world, and we are here for it! This past January, Bryan showed Peru (and the world) what he’s made of, earning over 13,000 votes in his efforts to earn a congressional position. And thankfully, Katie and Ryan Marley followed his journey every step of the way. Their upcoming documentary, “El Candidato” explores the biggest questions surrounding this election: Can someone with DS run for office and make a difference? Is the country ready for someone with DS to be a politician? Does Bryan Russell actually want to be a politician or is he just part of a larger agenda?
Join us for a chat with Bryan Russell, his parents, and Katie + Ryan for all things changing perceptions, navigating politics, and living in Peru!
