This week we welcomed Beth Thorpe, a Democratic digital strategist, to the podcast. She told us what exactly she does and how she works with campaigns. When it comes to campaigns, digital strategy is increasing in importance – the conversation touched on topics that are interesting to anyone who cares about campaigns.

Before speaking with Beth, we also tackled several news topics: Jazmin took a look at a story from the Courier-Journal that addressed Amy McGrath’s eligibility for the Governorship and Robert caught us up about the Kentucky Board of Education’s proposal for new graduation requirements. Plus, there were QUICK HITS!
