While riding my bike home last night and driving into work this morning, I listened (on a safe little speaker) to two podcasts (episodes?) that
(1) Reminded me what a powerful thinker and speaker Barbara Jordan was before her death
(2) Introduced me to Will Hurd, the only black GOP member of Congress who used to be a CIA agent and whose district runs hundreds of miles along the southwestern border.
(3) Show that a stories told without video or a slide deck can be as powerful as stories supported by video. But it takes a rare talent to pull it off.
Disclaimer: I think what Hurd says in this Daily interview makes great sense. However, I have no idea where he stands on other issues or, frankly, anything. On the issue of “the wall,” he’s a voice of reason.
Here are links to the two posts.
