Here's To The Losers: New HuffPost Politics Podcast Talks To Candidates Who Lost Big Races
January 14, 2016 at 3:59 AM (PT)
The HUFFINGTON POST's HUFFPOST POLITICS has launched a new podcast focusing on political candidates who didn't win their high-profile (and/or other) races, and the lessons they've learned from the experience.
POYNTER.ORG reports that "CANDIDATE CONFESSIONAL" will include former Reps. MICHELLE BACHMANN (R-MN) and JACK KINGSTON (R-GA), former VERMONT Governor HOWARD DEAN, and TEXAS legislator and gubernatorial candidate WENDY DAVIS, among others, talking about their "tough defeats."
HUFFPOST POLITICS' SAM STEIN and JASON CHERKIS host the series, which will also interview some whose losses came in non-political realms, like a man who participated in, and lost, the NATHAN'S hot dog eating contest for 17 years. The show is being produced by CHRISTINE CONETTA and debuted WEDNESDAY with the DEAN interview.
