Over 2 weeks ago, on Christmas Day, I recorded Episode 1 of my mini-podcast series “Blue Dots in a Red Sea: How to Win When You’re Blue in a Red State”.
And since then, building on the momentum of our Blue Wall from the 2022 midterm elections, I have sent you 12 mini-podcast episodes (including this one, Episode 12: Goodbye Red. Hello Blue!) with ideas and strategies of how we can turn even more red states, red counties, and red towns blue in time for the 2024 election.
On this final episode, I reflect on our journey since Christmas Day, and I look to the road ahead…
What if we do this?
What would that Blue world look like?
Could we handle the joy?…
Please listen, and share.

** In order to have a troll-free, hate-free comments section — and because if there’s one thing I know about my crazy haters, they would rather spend an eternity in hell with Marjorie Taylor Greene than send me $5 if forced to become a paid subscriber — my Comments section here on my Substack is limited to paid subscribers. But, not to worry — anyone can send me their comments, opinions and thoughts by writing to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I read every one of them, though obviously I can’t respond to all. And every few weeks or so I share them publicly here on Substack and on my podcast so that your voice is heard by the multitudes in this wonderful community of readers and listeners. The solution here is not optimal but it has worked and my Comments section has become a great meeting place for people wanting to discuss the ideas and issues I raise here. There is debate and disagreement, but it is refreshing to have it done with respect and civility, unfettered by the stench of bigotry and Q-anon insanity.
