What do you do when those in power deem people like you unwanted? You kick some ass and run for office! Elizabeth Guzeman joins Emily to talk about immigrating to the United States, her campaign for delegate in Virginia, and what it would mean to be the first Hispanic woman in the Virginia Assembly.
Anyone who said you can't run for office with four kids certainly forgot to tell Kathy Tran! Kathy (and special guest baby Elise) joins Emily to talk about immigration, her vision for the future, and running for office when kids outnumber the adults in your household.
We've finally got a doctor in the house! Dr. Christine Eady Mann stops by to chat about health care and her run for Congress. Pro tip - running for Congress is a breeze once you've been through medical school with 3 babies!
Let's get ready for primarieeeeeees!
Emily talks real talk about political primaries with Molly Sheehan, who is running for the U.S. House of Representatives in Pennsylvania. But first they talk about science, running for office, and bringing facts back in D.C.
It's all about Arkansas in this She's Running double feature! We chat with Maureen Skinner, running for Arkansas State Senate, but first we catch up on the Natural State with a very special guest - Emily's sister Morgan! They chat about the unexpected progressive turn their home state has taken which, we think, proves without a doubt that change is a'comin all over these United States.
"It's a way for women to speak honestly about what they're going through and get feedback and support from others."
Emily and Sofia chat about both of Sofia's jobs - Vice Mayor and Community Manager of She Should Run. And even with all that to talk about, Emily manages to brings it all back around to her. (Because that's what you do when you have your own podcast!)
But when I say 'Hey, I’m running as an Independent’, they kind of look at me sideways and say ‘Independent, huh? So what does that mean exactly?’
Emily and Cori discuss the beauty of Virginia, what it's like to be an Independent Candidate, and what exactly a delegate is. A swell time is had by all!
