WHY ARE ELECTIONS SO STRESSFUL? Well, the media are the easiest to point a finger at, but it really has more to do with the general amount of information coming our way, especially when one of the candidates is spewing lies. Fortunately, there's a man with a plan ... or at least he knows how to make it all make sense. On this special episode of Why Here, campaign strategist and political wunderkind Brian Derrick helps us understand where the U.S. election is and where it's likely going.
A liberal arts degree guarantees you nothing, besides a sense of entitlement and the nerve to think that you could somehow start a critically acclaimed podcast. Enter Why Here, a show independently produced and hosted by Tristan McAllister and Benton Whitley, two millennials and constant over thinkers who have spent their adult lives learning how little they actually know about the world around them. What manifests is a narrative as much about origin as it is about finding a destination. Through cultural commentary and interviews with friends and strangers the two uncover the complicated and inspiring stories that led us all here.
