Episode 17

Gabe Fleisher has been a political junkie since he was a child, starting his now-famous Wake Up To Politics daily newsletter before the age of ten. Now Gabe has a podcast on St. Louis Public Radio, and is blazing a trail as one of America’s most promising political journalists. Gabe joins James to discuss the portrayal of politics in pop culture, exploring the idealism of “The West Wing,” the dystopian world of “House of Cards,” and the doltishness of “VEEP.”
