The special guest for this week is the host of his own political podcast show called The Realignment. We discuss the purpose of why we chose to create these platforms for political discussion and their experience talking to various political figures and policy experts.
In this week’s episode, we are joined by Marshall Kosloff, Director of Outreach and Media for the Lincoln Network. He is also a Media Fellow at the Hudson Institute. He co-hosts “The Realignment” podcast. Before Lincoln, he was a researcher on PBS’s “Firing Line with Margaret Hoover” and participated in the Public Interest Fellowship.
He holds a bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of Oregon. As an undergraduate, Marshall received the Emerging Leader Award from America’s Future Foundation and was named to Red Alert Politics’ “Thirty Under Thirty 2015.”
