Party in the U.S.A.: Meet the team
Play • 32 min
Things have been moving quickly since Joe Biden’s transition team got the long-awaited access they need to  reboot the U.S. Government. The President-Elect has already formally announced some of his cabinet picks. And now we have a pretty good idea of what his foreign policy and national security team is going to look like. There are also some names trickling out on the domestic front.

John Kerry. Jake Sullivan. Janet Yellen — and those are just the Js. These are the people now tasked with getting a grip on the surging coronavirus in the U.S., fixing the economy and restoring the U.S.'s global reputation.

So, what do we need to know about the team starting on this daunting to do list? Elamin calls up Josh Wingrove, White House reporter for Bloomberg News, and Jen Kirby, foreign and national security reporter for Vox, for a bird-eye view of the incoming flock.

Annamie Paul + the Political Panel with Jenni and Scott
Alright Herle Burly-ites, time for today’s pod. We’ve got another 2-parter for you today. For Part 1, I’m so pleased to welcome Annamie Paul, Leader of Green Party of Canada. We’re going to find out a lot more about Annamie over the next hour or so, but she’s been involved in civic life since she was 12 years old, working as a page in the Ontario Legislature. She’s holds a Bachelor of Laws from the University of Ottawa and a Master in Public Affairs from Princeton University. Prior to being elected leader of the Greens this past October, Annamie founded the Canadian Centre for Political Leadership and worked in several Civic Engagement and International Affairs positions. We’re going to talk about her life, the electoral positioning and prospects for the Greens, and where she intends to take that party. Part 2 of the podcast is our ever-lovin’, ever-hatin’, ever-opinionated Political Panel, with Jenni Byrne and Scott Reid. We have a lot to cover this week: from the politics of COVID lockdown to the insurrection south of the border, and from censorship to big tech. Thank you for joining us on The Herle Burly podcast.
