The great thing about the Editorial Board is that it’s a group effort. I write. I edit. But I don’t do audio. I don’t do podcasts. But Editorial Board member Matt Robison does. And he does it well. He’s the host of Beyond Politics, a radio show and podcast out of WKXL in Concord, New Hampshire.

This week, he interviewed Editorial Board member Jason Sattler about his latest piece. Here’s the result below. We got a nice thing going.

Before I sign off, I wanted to mention how you can support politics in plain English for normal people, democracy and the common good even more than you already do as a wonderful subscriber.

First, you can leave a tip. There is no limit. Click here for that.

Second, you can buy gift subscriptions. Here are the rates.

$500 (!)

Gift subscriptions of $500 will receive an original one-of-a-kind illustration from the Editorial Board‘s in-house illustrator who’s also 10 years old and getting so good at drawing! But even if your gift is in the lower range, I can probably sweet-talk her into doing you a solid. –JS

The introduction to Matt’s show

Matt Robison: Welcome to Beyond Politics broadcast on WKXL, and available wherever you get your podcasts. I Matt Robison and recently I read an article with a following paragraph: Marjorie Taylor Greene “could marry Hunter Biden, put her pronouns on her Twitter bio and give herself a real-time abortion on Tucker Carlson’s desk while wearing a rainbow-colored N95 mask – she’d still win. … They’d vote for kumquat as long as it had an R next to it. 

And when I read that, I knew I had to have the author of those sentences on beyond politics. And now I do. Jason Sattler is better known as LOLGOP on Twitter. He’s a writer based in Ann Arbor, Michigan. He was a columnist and member of the USA Today board of contributors from 2017 to 2021.

And his recent article entitled “Marjorie Taylor Greene has already won: donate money to win elections, not lose them” actually inspired me to write an article that’s also coming out shortly on the Editorial Board. It may already be out by the time you hear this on pod. Maybe it’s not by the time you hear it on radio.

And my article is about the larger problem of Democrats getting away over-focused on the wrong stuff and kind of shooting ourselves in the foot. 

I’m really looking forward to talking about all of that with Jason. 

Welcome to beyond politics. 

Jason Sattler: Thanks for having me, Matt.
