Get me talking about politics, and it won’t be long before I start talking about outreach. Despite the inexplicable popularity of America’s Right, I am still very much new at this game, and find that I’m learning more and more each day about the various channels through which the right political message can be disseminated.
Since America’s Right really took off almost at this time last year, I’ve done a few radio shows. The most recent one was also a first, in that it is completely Internet-based. Aleksander Danilov’s Taking Back America podcast currently reaches approximately 110,000 subscribers, and has featured a wide variety of guests, including former GOP presidential hopeful Tom Tancredo.
A few weeks ago, it was my turn to field questions for the show, and for those who are interested in listening, the interview can be found by clicking HERE. After I finally called in–I had dialed a wrong number and must have really confused an older woman in the greater New York area, not to mention forcing Aleks to improvise–we spoke a little about America’s Right, the Republican Party, the Obama presidency and, at that time, the upcoming vote on cap-and-trade in the U.S. House of Representatives. I can’t say that I sounded good or even anywhere near eloquent, but Aleks was very accommodating and, in return, has agreed to do some writing here as well.
I look forward to Aleks’ contributions in the future, and the power that partnerships can bring. In the meantime, I hope you like the interview, and don’t laugh too hard at my extremely apparent inexperience.
