Episode 2: John Heilemann of The Circus/MSNBC


On this week’s episode Bob speaks with John Heilemann, the best-selling author of Game Change, co-host of Showtime’s The Circus, MSNBC contributor, and former staff writer for Wired and New York Magazine. 


Bob and John discuss where the Democratic primary race stands with Iowa and New Hampshire in the books, and assess the state of the top contenders’ campaigns as the race moves to Nevada and prepares for Michael Bloomberg’s entry.


More than just the horse race, we hear John’s perspective as one of the first political journalists of the digital era, having covered the 1996 campaign for a young Wired magazine, to examine the increasing risks for candidates, voters, and our electoral system in this light speed information age.
