Des Moines is French for The Moines

I had a great time making a series with Tommy Vietor and Pod Save America about the Iowa Caucuses. We followed two field organizers, the ground-level staffers who are the heart and soul of any presidential campaign. We explored why Iowa goes first, if that’s a good idea, and if not, then how else we could pick a nominee. It’s five episodes, you should listen.

And then you should make calls for the candidate you like. You should give them literally as much money as you possibly can. You should knock doors and bring snacks to your local campaign office. You should leave it absolutely all on the field from now until November, because these field organizers are going to and we have to too.

Here’s the series.
