Yesterday I took only 2 minutes of your time. (John L.: “As closely as I follow national politics, the clip you posted still stunned me. “)
Today, a 55-minute podcast of Al Franken interviewing long-time Republican campaign manager and Lincoln Project co-founder Steve Schmidt.
It’s just so interesting . . . especially when Al asks “what took you so long” to switch teams.
Schmidt gives a very real and human answer.
Al is a self-acknowledged slow talker — kind of unusual for a fast thinker.
One great thing about podcasts (and audiobooks): you can listen at 1.25X or 1.5X speed.
But with Al, Giant of the Senate, I generally don’t. I usually find myself savoring the whole thing, just as delivered.
This one was actually from the summer, but I had missed it the first time around.
Have you voted?
Quote of the Day
