The NPR Political Podcast Comes to Atlanta on October 20th. Mara Liasson Talks Voting & Polls

NPR Politics Podcast
Join The Local Take on Thursday, October 20th at 8PM at the Buckhead Theatre for the NPR Politics Podcast LIVE!

Voting is the topic. Lucky for us, the NPR Politics Podcast is coming to Atlanta on October 20th at the Buckhead Theatre. It has been three years since the NPR Politics Podcast was in Atlanta, and they’re back! You are all invited to come down to see your favorites, Asma Khalid, Miles Parks, Susan Davis, Tamara Keith, and Mara Liasson. Mara LIasson is joining us today to discuss the NPR Politics Podcast and the live behind-the-scenes look you will get on October 20th. This has been a very active mid-term cycle, and we have NPR Chief Political Correspondent Mara Liasson to join our ongoing conversation around politics.

Mara Liasson tells us about the NPR Politics podcasts and how it is the continuing conversation she and her colleagues would have after the broadcasts.

I ask her thoughts on Georgia turning purple in the last election cycle. She speaks about our state making a difference in national politics with the election of John Ossof and Raphael Warnock. I ask her about rumors of a “Roevember” revolt or if she thinks history will repeat itself with the party not in the White House garnering significantly more votes. She speaks to the historical data and shares that “history is history until it’s not.” Time will tell if women voters are still hyped to show up at the polls.

The NPR Politics Podcast will be live on October 20th at the Buckhead Theatre. A few tickets are available here if you’d like to join us.
