The Hot Chick Politic Show | Basic Human Connection

New Sacramento podcast "The Hot Chick Politic Show." HCP delivers informed conversations about society, charity, education, and small business. One of our mantras is "think globally, but act locally." We believe, here at HCP, that by getting familiar with the people associated with these categories (the doers) we can grow a more compassionate society. We would love to see voter turn out grow with every election, and for America to become a voting culture. Now, we have all heard the history about winning the right to vote, but less than half of all Americans actually vote. We can do this. Please take a minute to check out The Hot Chick Politic Show and listen for yourself ☺

The Hot Chick Politic Show | Your Weekly Dose of Basic Human Connection

Jan 27, 2015

Hello All,

Ever wonder what politics means to you?  Not just theoretically or on election day, but how the political sphere affects our daily lives.  What do 'politics' have to do with me anyway?  A few years (ok, a decade;) ago, one of my polical science professors started her first day of lecture with this same question to all of her students.

As she watched us wriggle in our seats to try and come up with and intellectual comback, she did something really cool.  I'll never forget this, it changed the way I looked at politics...forever.  

She said anybody name ONE thing.  Anything. Anything at all.  An item of clothing, the clock on the wall, the parking lot we parked in, the car we drove, you get the idea.  Name one thing that has not had to go through a political process before it became accessable for use or consumption by the general population.  

Take your clothes.  Where did the fabric come from? Who or what sewed the seems together? Where was it made? how did they get to the store where you bought them?

Bureaucracy (aka 'red-tape') is the governments way of ensuring products and services are made available and meet minimum standards for consumption.  I dare you to try this exercise yourself.  See if you can name ONE thing that hasn't, at one point or another, been subjet to politics.  

It was a reality check for me.  Politics, whether we like it or not, are a part of our world, and affect you personally and directly.  But, when we hear 'experts' or 'political analysts' talk on television, the disconnect is glaringly obvious.  

None of us are 'experts' but we do know about values, logic, and the Golden Rule (do unto others....yatta yatta yatta).  Experts have there place, but it is time for us to have our place too.  Hot Chick Politic interview sessions are the place.  We can talke about our truth;  truths that the common people can relate to, we can hold on to, and bond over.

This podcast is about talking to those people, the doers.  The people on the 'front lines making this American life work for them.  I predict that, on this journey of interviews and connection, we will find out that we are more alike than we are different.

Goodnight All,

Tami Diane
