"Provide experience guidance to do you ever. When you were trying to find your way around. Was it like the first few days of being a freshman high schooler, where like a more experienced senator would just find you crying hallway and you would say I can't. You know you have your moments, but. I've got an a witch. Senator was your Go-to for finding out the best places to eat. I have to say there are a number who have good suggestions, but you don't have a lot of time to go out and eat I. Mean you know? You're doing stuff well into the evening so. It's like maybe eating you order. Or you know there are places on the hill that our did a really good. Really close to the capital where you'll meet up. To have dinner with with another senator, and they're very good restaurants, but there you go to them because they're close right. Are there any other institutions in Washington besides restaurants that you want to recommend that you spent a couple of years there. Yet. Look if I had to choose one of the. Hundreds. Of Thousands of institutions in Washington DC memorials, museums, etc, the place that is my Go-to is the library of Congress and That is not intended to diminish anything else, but it really is a cathedral to the idea of democratic small d education, the notion that if people have a chance to read and to learn than our democracy flourishes, and it's an extraordinary place. One of my favorite things again pre pandemic. We have bipartisan What's called Congressional Dialogue Evenings where we have? Cocktails and dinner. We have display that the library of Congress staff puts on. That is related to a book that we're GONNA. Hear about over the course of dinner. And then they interviewed the author of the book. About American history or the constitution or something like that? It's just phenomenon I hope it's not a book about Honeybee. Wouldn't be available. Thanks to Paula. Poundstone I'm Tony. Chat. That is true, but you know that's. That's. kind of my favorite place and then. You know the the other thing recently. With all the tumult going on and with all. The concerns we have right now. I found myself on a nice walked to the Lincoln memorial the other the other Sunday morning. I think just to. I wanted I. wanted the grounding that that provides you know, and that's the other thing about this this city. And this capital of ours there are lots of different places to go and reflect and think about what has strengthened as a country. What has weakened us. And what we need to do to make it better and you don't. Have time to reflect at these remarkable places in this remarkable city country of ours is a pretty special thing. That's on so cool. I'm a little bit like that with the Vons Grocery store, which is really the only place I go. But if you go over in the cereal aisle. And you get a minute unbelievable. Just thinking about it's amazing. How similar U2 are in that regard? Well, thank you. Senator has and for providing us with an insight into life on Capitol Hill and now we're gonNA..

"It? The total spending on our campaign was north of one hundred twenty five million dollars. Wow Yeah and say voters were there. How many? Seven hundred thousand or so. Those are wow. Yeah, so it's more than one hundred bucks per vote. Yeah! It's it's. It is ridiculous, and so what happens is you were kind of in this arms race for campaign funds and it's not healthy. and. We all learn to. Manage. Through it, but when you think of how that money could be spent on other things honestly. You know I. I sometimes do think that if we said to voters. Hey, if you vote for this constitutional amendment, you won't see nearly as many political ads on TV they might. That would be. They might say hey. That's not a bad idea. It would be worth it to me anyway, but it would be worth it to me just to get emails off my thing one more email of everyone blaming me for their you know I got one the other day that said we've asked you and asked you. That was the subject line that was. Might have been from one of my cancer. Meiji Yeah Yeah.

Your governor and I'm sure there was a learning curve there, too, but you get finally on the Wednesday. It turns out. Yes, you are the junior senator of from New Hampshire and now you go to the Senate. How do you know how to be Senator? Well among other things. They have an orientation new senators. Really it's it's a whirlwind. But it is helpful because you get to you get to DC and it's everything from you know kind of what are the procedural rules of the Senate? What are the? Overall kind of. Decorum rules of the Senate. How do they? Do How do you find your way around the capital because it's really big, and there were tunnels, and if you're walking underground tunnels, you lose your if you're me, you lose your sense of direction and there's lots and lots of different rooms, so some of it is like just physically. Figuring out where you are at how long it's going to take you to get things. And then they kind of go over what the procedure is in hearings and and then there's some socializing. Meanwhile, you gotta find a place to live, and you're trying to get to know your other senators and It's, but it's helpful and you know you. You get advice from an incumbent senators about how to structure office in what the processes for introducing a bill and all that kind of stuff.

"On a candidate or on an issue. And they can spend without telling anybody who's really funding it. Did. It was all in, so if you around election time. If you are sick to death of the. Seventeen different kinds of commercials for or against something or somebody. All all funded by groups that call themselves. You know Americans who love Americans or something like that right? And you just and you see these the ads are. Omnipresent. They're usually pretty negative. and they just keep coming and coming. That is the result of citizens united. It's unlimited money being spent. It's also undisclosed donors, so you can't figure out WHO's behind it and why they are against were four something and It drowns out. the voices of other people who don't have those kinds of resources and so It's really it has been a terrible decision for our country and for democracy, and is one of the things that. We want to try to attend to A. Should we get the majority in November without? Kind of an interesting question. which is is, how do you attend to it i? Look at when you get a disastrous supreme court decision like citizens united or or the recent Gutting Voting Rights Act which proved to be. They were very wrong about that problem. Being taken care of down south. Once Supreme Court has ruled what? Do our does our latest legislature have short of a constitutional amendment. What can be done to rollback? The citizens. United decision well. The ultimate. Fix here is. A constitutional amendment which is your indicate is really hard to do, but you could start for instance requiring disclosure of donors. And that is something that even in the citizens united case judge, Scalia said was okay that that states in the federal government could say you get to spend as much as you want, but you have to tell people who spending. So you could start there and then there are a series of other ideas, and it's something a lot of different election, law and Campaign Finance, and First Amendment lawyers have been a drilling into, but one of the most basic things you could do is at least provide people information about who's behind. All these big guys! Yeah, how how does their citizens united? Decision. How does it affect you as a senator? So. I ran for the Senate back in two thousand, sixteen. I was running against. Incumbent Republican senator. And the total amount of spending in our race. This is New Hampshire one point three million people. But of course we have a Boston media market, so that's an expensive media market. A lot of people in southern New Hampshire Watch Boston TV. And We spent the total spending, not what my campaign or my opponent's campaign spent..

"I'm trying to think of how our stance would react to like. I need time to build a birdhouse with another senator. Keep the staff's out of it. Is Fair. Let me ask you this earlier. You said that one of the things you liked about. Being senator like being governor was that you were able to help people in state with issues. Now I have occasionally. Called senators aren't my senator. They're not even from my state just to say look I know I'm not in your state, but this is how I feel about this and I just wanted you to know. I don't talk to them directly obviously, but left a phone message. Does that have any effect? It has less effect if you're talking to his senator. WHO's not from your state? Do Our job is to represent our state, so I always say to people. It's best to call the senators from your own state, but it's also you know there are times people from other parts of the country. Weigh in on things and certainly when they have A. Different Perspective on something I'm working on. I think it's really helpful But you're generally. Busy. Would never say that to polo because the calls might be so engaging. Okay not. Whole nine managers interest. Let's get to let's get to the the the well known evils that impede Senate and see if they really are that evil like we're trying to believe that lobbyists are bad. Are they all bad? Are there any good ones? So I'm going to give you an example of a lobbying group. That is a great lobbying group. They are called dolittle lobbyists. And these are children who have had complex medical issues. And disabilities. Many informed cost, you know their their medical bills. In their first year of life, exceeded a million dollars, and they travel with their families to the capital to advocate for healthcare for everybody so that all families are protected. Should they face challenges like there's an at the height of the remember back in the summer of seventeen? The Republicans controlled the White House the House and the Senate and they were dead set on repealing the affordable care act, and the little lobbyists came to town. And, first of all I gotTa Tell You you know. Your listeners may or may not know this, but I have a son who has. Pretty severe and significant cerebral palsy, so I am quite familiar with a how hard it can be just to get out of the House and get to school or the grocery store when a loved one has a lot of special needs and equipment, and all that kind of stuff and these families, children with oxygen, tanks and tracheotomies, children, and with wheelchairs children with braces or crutches.

"You house, J. Clinton thanks, J., fantastic it. He is fantastic, and we really appreciate all the nobody's who are chipping in to be our house ban during these troubled times. Anyway Paulo you had a super interesting high school friend. You know what I was so lucky. The high school I went to. Seem to spawn all sorts of interesting people but. We have mentioned John John John from they might be. Giants went to school with you in Lincoln. But more importantly, I went to school with the now junior senator from New Hampshire Maggie Hassen and before she was the senator from New Hampshire. She ran for governor and served as governor, and before that she was in the state Senate, and you know what I had the absolute joy. She had asked me at one point if I would do a fundraiser, one of those backyard, cheese and wine things right and there's nothing like backyard cheese. Now, it's the best. It was the first time I had seen her in that capacity, and so I stood up and did some jokes and then. Introduced her to make a speech, and when I listened to her speech I literally. Literally, my hair stood on end because it was electrifying it here's why it was electrifying. Madam I a Democrat and I support all sorts of Democrats and I've listened to all sorts of democratic speeches, but I always listened thinking well. You know they might be exaggerating well that you know there might be just what we want to hear, but see when I listened to Maggie Hassen talk because I. Know Her from way back. I knew that every single word she was saying was true, and she was talking about how you know. Things were more manageable than we realized and that you could do this and still balance the budget and it. Electrifying just like you, said Wow, well, you know I consider US fortunate that you guys have remained friends and that she's willing to tell us about life. As a US senator, she served in the New Hampshire Senate where she was majority leader, and then in two thousand twelve, as policy was elected governor of the Granite State in twenty sixteen, she was elected to the United States Senate. where she sits on the Finance Committee the Health Education Labor and pensions, committee and the Committee on Homeland Security Nobody's please welcome senator Maggie Hassen..

"You know getting in shape doesn't have to be about losing a specific amount of weight or a magic number on the scale. It's about building healthier habits and feeling better about yourself, if fitting into that favorite pair of jeans, is your goal great? But there are many reasons why you might want to practice self care, and every person is different. I just know that when I more fit I just have more energy. When I filled out my neum. They asked you a bunch of questions when you first go on the site and they like well. Why do you want to do this? For the first time? In my life I had brevity. I just said energy. That's a good answer, but you know everyone is different, and and if you listen to podcast, you know for a fact, everyone is different and what I like about neum. That's no is that it adjust your lifestyle. They teach the psychology behind decisions. You make an in help. You keep track of everything from workouts steps to analyzing your diet and recommending healthy recipes and Neum also connects you with a personally assigned goal specialists and a community I have a group of other numerous. So you have all the support you need to empower your change and like for me. It's not about feeling good. Paula I WANNA to be able to look good. Oh that goes without saying. Yeah, but for me. It's all about that I'm that superficial? I really admire you for owning up to that right here. All right so I suppose I am. Because I've been making these workout videos online and I to say when I when I'm forced to watch them you know to. Be. Going to Redo it or not? I you know I gotta say that. There are times where I look at myself. When I go, you know what? It looked better now that I've dropped a few pounds. Wow so and you're not toting around the same. Amount of weight which naturally makes you feel more energetic. Right when you're not. Lifting as as much just to get up out of your chair. The other thing is. What I found helpful when I first went on the site. Answer a bunch of questions after they tell you the answers already actually. And one of the things. that. Foods with a lot of water in them can fill you up, but they're not as caloric. You know I saw that too. And I took that specific lesson and I was amazed because I started thinking about the things that I like because apparently it just matters how much the food ways and a lot of weight is water weight. That's great because you feel full as full with water as you would with fried French fries. Yeah, what I've been doing is taking grapes and just smashing them into a container. So that I can get more and more of them. I'm kidding I i. have actually I never thought I would say this in my lifetime, but I've been tearing. In the produce aisle of the grocery store I've actually but grapes multiple times already this summer. Because I'm taking news advice. Well Yeah, because one of the things that they say in that water listen and there are so many lessons, but we're dwelling on water right now. Is that a great bit of raisin have the exact same number of calories in a great fills you up about eight times more. The other thing that I'm hoping to do at some point this summer. Cove ed allowing if we can use social distancing and everything we need to do to stay safe is I'm hoping to go to your house and just drink your pool. Yeah, that's great..

"It's balancing those tensions with the understanding that hearing each other out and really listening and trying to address the concerns that people at the table actually creates better decisions that will have longer lasting impact and be more acceptable to more people in the country because you've really take into account so many different perspectives. We are I am concerned. I'm a new Senator I've just been there two years. We don't legislate a lot. We've been having a dispute debate within the Senate about the process needed to confirm the administrator. Nominees cabinet sub cabinet and to the courts, and there is real concern that some of the things that have happened with this week. In particular means that we are making very very quick decisions about people who have lifetime appointments to the court. There have been several instances over the last two years where the Republicans have had a majority they decided to go to just a fifty vote threshold for judges and. Even though there was initial consensus among Republicans that they were all going to vote for nominee. When we had. It least thirty hours of time between their nomination hitting the floor and the vote there were a few judges who were vetted a little bit more and actually some Republicans. Wait, wait a minute. Now that I've I'm not onto dish. I didn't hear the hearing. I didn't see all the files now that I'm reading this. I don't think I can't I think that's important. And so there is frustration right now. At least I'm frustrated because I think we are politicizing some of this process. And I know that the Republicans have view about the idea that it started with them Kratz when Democrats were in control. So I'm sorry to everybody who sometimes sinks. They're watching children fight because. Once one group says, it's their fault. And the other group says you started it, and I feel like a parent just wanting to cook dinner and saying I don't care whose fault it is just stop, let's fix it. So that's all by way of saying that I think there are ways where we could modernize. Because some of our process us take a long time, and they were designed in the nineteenth century. Maybe that's not exactly how we should operate. But I do think we need to take a deep breath and find a way where we respect the notion that listening to each other and giving each other a little bit of time with ideas really does create better decisions. You recently had a very similar thread encouraging everyone, including the candidates for president to take a deep breath and have some consideration with the green new deal medicate for all..

"She is she trying to tell America that she was working hard to stay in her position to stop. Whatever is coming next. I don't mean to be like a conspiracy theorist, but this weird, right? Don't need to the reporting is saying that Steven this is Stephen Miller, and he's exerting his the full force. Of his influence inside the White House, particularly with guards to immigration. He's looking to be more hard edged about immigration, and sort of bring the administration along with and finally that's not a conspiracy theory. I mean, I think that that's the reporting out there. And it's also terrifying. He terrifies me. Don't know why he's still there. The country would be better off. Stephen Miller was the one being fired. I don't even like your Stinson. Stephen Miller is like the beatings will continue until morale improves. With this administration is trying to do on immigration is so obviously ineffective and every time. They learn it's ineffective there like double down. Let's do it. A little do it enough. We'll do it more that will fix it. Oh, the worst. And it forces us into this terrible scenario where you have people who are sympathetic to asylum seekers, basically, saying fine. Let's just have no process, then you know, what I mean? Because right now, we're at a place where the policies enacted by this administration have failed so terribly that we have created a crisis around our system when when the president tweets the country is full will ridiculous. But here's what's true. The detention centers are full. The descendants centers are full because we have done a miserable job with this issue. And the the fixed to that is not let's have no process. Then right. Like that's gonna land in a terrible twenty twenty. We do not want to twenty twenty election. Where one party says, it's fine whatever and the other party saying, let's lock everybody up there. In a way forward here, America. But that's not the way that that's not what Trump is looking for. Stephen Miller is gonna say, you know, what let's just close the border often. I mean as though that's the thing. It's not a thing. Mitch McConnell's definitely not going to let it be thing. I was just thinking though, when you said the word detention centers, and how I just have such a visceral reaction to that in how the reality is. I didn't really even know we had to engine centers before two thousand sixteen or maybe even before two thousand seventeen. So the entire story is that for better or for worse. We all are much more aware of our current immigration system where it's failing where it's full where it's under a great amount of pressure and my desperate optimistic. Hope is that because we are all more aware of the real boots on the ground reality. Now are do all of us have a complete picture of what's happened on the border. No, you can't have a complete picture of what's happening on the board until you go to the border, which I have not done. But I do think that everybody has a fuller picture of. Of the system and its failings in the pressures. Maybe just maybe that could lead to a better conversation surrounding immigration with the twenty twenty presidential campaign, and look it's a really complicated problem because I always hear myself advocating for aid in the northern triangle. Let's try to fix the situation these countries. So that we take pressure off of our asylum system, that's not easy. And that's the kind of intention that has led to lots of American soldiers being killed in foreign countries trying to be helpful. And so I don't want to pretend that anything about. This is easy. What I think is obvious is that this administration's approach hasn't worked and just in the same thing in crueler terms isn't gonna get us there. But that seems to be their only strategy, especially Stephen Miller steering the show. Okay. Speaking of crueler terms. The last thing we want to talk about is his favorite candidates named to pronounce Pete digits. Favorite game winning your prince Asian primary, but I do love to say, but a judge and now my four year old says visually. Well, I also have this weird tick where my brain wants to seeing about pizza judge about yes, he made a lot of news this weekend..
