I just listened to Episode 3. Really enjoyed it, particularly the part about Kenny G! BTW Andrea, I know you have gotten a few negative comments on iTunes review about your music in the episodes, but I really think it adds to the whole effect. The music foreshadowed and set up the Kenny G piece perfectly!

Lastly - I was looking for a 'Decode DC' FB page, and I ran across a 'DC Decoder' page. No relationship it would appear. So, are you planning to do FB as well or keep it on this page? Just wondered.

Looking forward to the next episode!

Thank you, Andrea! I covered one election cycle (2010 in Missouri) and the #1 lesson I learned was this contrast between an event's spontaneous appearance and the intense staging used to create it. You said in Politico's article that you were lied to daily. I wonder: Do you count this staging as a lie, also?

You've hit on some big issues. It's frustrating that the big party election discussion is limited to sound bites.
