The Business of Political Messaging with Mark Langgin of GPS Impact

The way political candidates get their message has vastly changed. Back in the day radio, television and newspapers took the major portion of campaign dollars. Today much of that has changed depending on the demographic of the targeted voter. It's an interesting business and here we visit with Mark Langgin a partner in GPS Impact. We talk about the various platforms, the message creation and the delivery using a host of methods. What's hot and what's not so much. And, as we head into 2020 we figure you might want to learn more about how all this works.

Universal Basic Income and Why It Works with Andrew Yang 2020 Presidential Candidate

Two things you need to know about 2020 presidential candidate Andrew Yang: 1) He is not a politician and 2) he is wicked smart yet self deprecating at the same time. I sat down with Mr. Yang following a meeting he had with about 20 small business owners who, as he spoke about the Universal Basic Income or $1,000 a month to each person 18 - 65, were very sceptical of the idea. But, within a few minutes the men and women realized it wasn't a "pipe dream" but something that can work for every American and our economy. Got you interested? Click through and meet Andrew Yang:

The Political Swag Business with Marc Daniels

Months ago during the cold Iowa Winter our friend Marc Daniels found a niche in which to sell campaign swag. But this was different. Marc chose to flood the field with Jewish head-gear or Yarmulkas or Kippot...head coverings. He made each one and then stood outside of the venues and sold the heck out of them. Now with 84 days remaining he wants to turn his business into "weeding out hate" and planting seeds of peace. An interesting business interview and here is his website for more!

The Business of Iowa Watch and Covering the Iowa Caucuses

Iowa is awash with presidential candidates and while each has a story they want to tell the real story often lies beneath the sound-bite. Meet Lyle Muller of Iowa Watch a non-profit news organization that has built a reputation on asking tough questions and offering future journalists an opportunity to hone their craft. We met on the campus of Drake University where he was about to visit with some budding journalists.
