Episode 06: It Was Purposeful
**Disclaimer** **** This episode features an interview with Rembert Browne, host of Gaining Ground: The New Georgia, that was recorded early on the morning of January 6, before any of the events in DC occurred, and while we were still overjoyed about Jon Ossoff and Reverend  Warnock’s victories in the Senate runoff. The introduction was recorded the next day, January 7. ***** The format for this episode is a little different from our usual style. Our hosts Holly and Marcus got on a call with our friend Rembert Browne, from the Crooked Media podcast Gaining Ground: The New Georgia, to have a more casual chat about the results. (spoiler alert: Warnock and Ossoff both won) They discuss how Georgia's political landscape has shifted over the years, especially outside of Atlanta, why the type of grassroots organizing we've been covering works so well, and what kind of leadership Georgia is likely to see come from its newly elected senators.
