In this week's episode, host Ryan Coonerty talks with Indianapolis, Indiana Representative Blake Johnson. They discuss how to govern successfully in a legislative super minority, and how he has built productive relationships with colleagues with different ideologies by identifying their shared values. They discuss his work to prioritize communication between candidates and citizens by starting a podcast, Sessions, Sessions, which aims to explain in layman's terms the mechanics of how the legislature works and to empower people to participate in a dialogue with their elected officials. Tune in to get an insider's perspective on the changing political environment, and why the front of a brownie box is better than the back.
