65: Candid(ate) Episode 1: The Future is Female

SPECIAL EPISODE: Hellbent Media's newest show, in partnership with EMILY's List.

Our new show, Candid(ate): Real Conversations with Women Running for Office is out today!

This week, Devon Handy sits down with EMILY's List VP of communications, Christiana Reynolds, and EMILY's List president, Stephanie Schirock, to talk about why we see so many women running for office - and why this isn’t just a moment, but a movement; a fundamental change in who is going to lead our country from here on out.

Over the next 10 weeks, Hellbent Media and EMILY's List are going to bring you real conversations with these women. We are going to bring you their stories, told in their own words: their issues, their solutions, and their plans to change their communities and the country as a whole. It’s our pleasure to introduce you to the future elected leaders of this country. The future -- the very near future -- is female.

Be sure to subscribe to the new show on its iTunes page and never miss a conversation with one of these extraordinary women.
