Arlington Democrats are excited to announce that the award-winning podcast Pantsuit Politics will host this year's Blue Victory Dinner VIP reception from 5:45 to 6:45 pm immediately prior to the Blue Victory Dinner on April 21. For the first time ever, the VIP reception will serve as a live podcast, with reception attendees serving as audience members who are part of the conversation Pantsuit Politics will convene with the Blue Victory Dinner honored guests. Voted by The Guardian as one of the best podcasts of 2017, Pantsuit Politics features Sarah Stewart Holland “from the left” and Beth Silvers “from the right,” creating a space to discuss politics with “no shouting, no insults, and plenty of nuance.” This dynamic duo is bringing their sweat-it-out-to-find-solutions approach to Arlington to speak to seven of the eleven Democratic women who made history last November by winning House of Delegate seats. Sarah and Beth will sit down with Hala Ayala, Danica Roem, Jennifer Carroll Foy, Wendy Gooditis, Elizabeth Guzman, Karrie Delaney, and Kathy Tran to discuss their historic wins, why representation matters, the importance of inclusive representation, and how all of us bring multi-layered experiences to governance and the legislative process. Pantsuit Politics has 40,000 followers, with each podcast generating between 10,000 and 15,000 hits, for a total of over 2 million independent downloads.
