Episode 5: Jake Sherman of Politico

There’s a lot to discuss this week as coronavirus concerns resonate across the Democratic primary and the country at large. Bob spoke with Jake Sherman, senior writer for POLITICO and co-author with Anna Palmer of “The Hill to Die On: The Battle for Congress and the Future of Trump’s America,” about attempts by both Congress and the Administration to respond to the crisis in our healthcare and financial systems.  

They discuss Joe Biden’s big victories in Tuesday’s primaries and whether the upcoming calendar could be affected by virus concerns. Since Jake is a Congressional reporter they zoom in on a handful of dynamic House and Senate races that could be indicators of larger trends in November.

Finally, Jake shares the indelible role that the Grateful Dead (and live music in general) continues to play in his life.
