Hey, this is Andrew Blumenfeld. I'm the co-founder of a Democratic software company called Call Time.AI. I'm also a former Democratic candidate, and fundraiser, and campaign manager. And we built CallTime.AI  because we believe deeply that Democrats up and down the ballot deserve access to high-quality tools that help them run financially viable and credible campaigns. But along the way, we've had an opportunity to meet some really interesting folks who are working in and around politics. And we found that there's a big topic that a lot of people are hoping to discuss more - that's money and politics. So we're launching this podcast to uncover some interesting questions about everything to do with money in politics, how it gets into politics, how it gets spent in politics, who polices that money. We're talking to major donors and asking them how they make decisions about the checks that they write. We're talking to campaigns about how they navigate fundraising during a crisis, and journalists how they write about money in politics. This is a topic that all too often lives in the shadows, and we're excited to help shed some light on it. So if you're interested, subscribe to the money and politics podcast today
