Welcome to Season 3, Episode 9! We love bringing back guests and getting a chance to talk about more topics. Today’s return guest is Brad Jenkins, the President and CEO of the AAPI Victory Fund, the first Super PAC focused on mobilizing Asian American and Pacific Islander voters in the U.S. Brad Jenkins has a long decorated history that includes being an award-winning producer with Funny or Die and founding Enfranchisement Productions. In today’s conversation, we cover a LOT of things including a reflection on the November mid-term elections, the current congress, being a guest of Andy Kim and watching many failed votes for Speaker of the House, the importance of Ted Lieu’s role in the Democratic Party, how to battle disinformation and outright lies, and what the Victory Fund will be focusing on now. We encourage you to follow the work of the AAPI Victory Fund and donate to amplify their work.
