Harry welcomes to the show, executive producer and podcast host, Jen Briney. Jen is the host of the Congressional Dish Podcast, a twice-monthly show that aims to draw attention to where the American people truly have power: Congress. From the perspective of a fed up taxpayer with no allegiance to any political party, Jen fills her listeners in on the must-know information about what our representatives do AFTER the elections and how their actions can and will affect our day to day lives.

In this episode, Harry and Jen talk about the genesis of Jen’s Congressional Dish podcast and why it’s focused more on government than politics. Have you ever wondered why we focus more on the Presidency than Congress, the branch of government that writes, debates and passes the bills that become laws that impact our daily lives? Jen talks about crypto, the political awakening that is happening in our society today and the power of being informed.

“The show kept going and I say that my biggest victory during the Trump years is that I didn’t quit.” (20:55) (Jen)

“I have no allegiance to the political parties. I have no ideology. I can agree with people all over the political spectrum because I think it’s all a lie. I can find common ground with just about any American on something and yet we’re told we’re the most polarized we’ve ever been. I approach this podcast as I want to know what’s being done with my money and in my name. It’s that simple.” (27:09) (Jen)

“I’m amazed that I’m a professional podcaster. It was one of those things where the podcast was a way for me to talk about government. I love reading about the bills and laws. What I don’t love is the tech and figuring out where the microphone goes.” (38:35) (Jen)

“When I look at January 6th , I’m looking at the bills they’re writing because of it, which are going to expand spying powers and give more power to the FBI and give more money to the Capitol police.” (48:35) (Jen)

“I want to be informed about what’s really going on in the world. I want to know because I feel like there’s a lot of power in that. It’s helped me financially. It’s helped me make decisions about what I want to do with my life.” (56:02) (Jen)

“There’s an awareness now in our population that we are being systematically lied to by these two parties.” (1:00:02) (Jen)
