If you’re new to Majority 54, I’m Jason Kander, the president of Let America Vote: an organization dedicated to making sure that every American gets to vote by creating political consequences for anyone who wants to diminish the most basic American right. And we're talking to the 54% of American who did not vote for Donald Trump about where we go from here.In the first episode of this second season, we talk to someone who has an incredible platform about how he uses it to do good. That man is someone that a couple of you may know: Mr. Lin-Manuel Miranda. The creator of In The Heights and Hamilton discusses making politics entertaining and engaging, as well as how to choose fundraising campaigns to maximum effect. Then, we ask when he's going to run for Secretary of Treasury, since he has more experience than the current Secretary of Treasury. This is just a killer interview and we hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed recording it.There are only a few days left to support the campaign Lin-Manuel is running, which benefits Let America Vote among other worthwhile organizations.

Show is great but 'helping' in commercials is not
The show itself is really interesting. I really like the part at the end where Jason gives you rebuttals to Republican talking points. The 2 episodes I've heard were both thought-provoking. However, he has his wife do the commercials - she's fine, commercials are fine (ya gotta support yourself) but his "flirting"/and CONSTANT interrupting and acting like a 14 year old boy or Al Franken "being funny" are enough to make me bail on the show. Jason, butt out! Let her do the commercials - you are SO not funny.

This podcast is so important. This is something I never knew I needed in my life. Each podcast is better than the last but each previous doesn't feel diminished. Very well done, and truth be told, your delivery of the commercials is hilarious to me because you remind me of my own husband and me. I, too, went to school for political science, and have been working in food service for nearly a decade for life reasons(husband, kids, starting a business). I am going to be starting a political education blog to use MY platform soon. I am currently laying the groundwork and am hoping to go live by the end of January and I have been asked to run for local school board in April 2018. Thank you so much, Mr. (and Mrs.) Kander for both your service and this podcast. Can't wait to keep listening!
