This week, our hosts interview the PRG bullpen, consisting of our fall semester Interns and 2018-2019 Fellow. Topics include how the youngest Millennials will continue to shape politics and advocacy, misconceptions the team had about lobbying before joining PRG, and what it takes to thrive in a DC internship.
After a brief break from talking trade, Paul and Josh’s favorite subject is back. Our guest this week is Stephen Pavlick, former Deputy Assistant Secretary, Legislative Affairs at the Treasury Department and current Washington Policy Analyst for Renaissance Macro Research. We discuss tariffs, NAFTA and the new USMCA, and Trade War strategies.
The Lobby Shop is back from a quick Thanksgiving break with the federal budget and immigration at the forefront of DC news. We welcome Todd Schulte (@TheToddSchulte), President of FWD.us, to the show to discuss the politics and history of immigration reform in the U.S. and what the future of the issue looks like for a post-Midterms America.
