Mission Statement: Our mission is to serve as a platform where we can inform others and share our opinions.

This is “Weekly Political Pep Talks” where we discuss major political headlines and issues within the United States.

We started this podcast because we are politically active teenagers who want to inform as many people as we can about current events and break down what’s happening in American politics. We’ll do this through reporting the facts, sharing our opinions, guest appearances, and relevant quotes from political figures.

In each episode, we’ll begin by discussing major news headlines and current events and giving our thoughts. Then we’ll move on to our main topic for the episode, discuss both sides of the issue, and once again share our thoughts. Finally, we’ll close by stating a “quote of the week.”

We’ll also be active on our Instagram and post clips from our podcast to our YouTube channel. So if you want more behind-the-scenes content or want to learn more about us and the podcast, be sure to check our social media.

If you enjoy our podcast, be sure to follow or subscribe, whatever platform you’re on, and share this with your friends and family.

Happy listening, and stay political.
