Tonight – I’ll be on The Rundown Hosted by Hunter Dubis & Skylar Budman AT 9:30 PM EST

You can check them out here – they’re a conservative outlet hosting their podcast The Rundown. Come and listen!

https://www.facebook.com/TheRundownMG/

They’ll be live as well, so this will be completely unedited. As you all know I am left leaning in my politics, so I will be talking to those of an opposing ideology BUT debate is debate nonetheless, and starting a dialogue is key in the country right now.
You can expect them to come onto my own podcast as well in the coming days! So stay tuned.
