Today I’m talking to Mark Davis, a conservative radio host and host of the popular podcast ‘The Mark Davis Show’.
Mark’s articulate, intelligent, and respectful, and talking to him is a real pleasure.
Both working in media, we talk about his career in media and how the way people consume media is shifting and changing.
The chat then moves onto politics, how the virus has affected the election, and why today’s election is such an important one.
Finally, we talk about Trump and how he’s changed the landscape of America’s politics and highlighted some serious flaws within our society…
