Growing the conversation from the heartland of American politics with a focus on factual analysis & fundamental fairness but not afraid to embrace the funny when it exists. Dedicated to the folks on the two-lane roads, gravel drives, and family farms.
MEET THE HEARTLAND POD
Host: ADAM SOMMER
Attorney, Warrensburg MO
JD from the University of Missouri School of Law
BS in Political Science from University of Central Missouri
I choose to work with Heartland Strong to help bring attention to the issues facing folks not just in the biggest of cities but across the heartland. Millions of Americans live in cities, towns, and villages connected not by six-lane interstates, but winding two-lane roads, and the fabric of generations spent farming the land. Progress in the areas of climate, health care, and community are not red issues, blue issues, city or rural. They impact all of us, in real ways. By working with Heartland Strong I hope to improve the conversation and bring better understanding to the positive impact that progressive issues have for all.
LET'S HAVE A CHAT:
Special weekly guests chat with your host Adam about issues and topics important specifically to the Heartland of the United States of America.
Adam, Sean, Rachel, and Zack approach political events and themes from the four expert lenses of a lawyer, campaign manager, freelance writer/political blogger, and political scientist, respectively.
Adam shares a drink with Sean, Rachel, and Zack for a more casual conversation about the news and possible outcomes. Imagine a more hypothetical and fun take on Talkin' Politics.

Excellent Pod for Anyone!
A well-done pod that makes me yearn for a fire,
some whiskey, and more conversation with these folks.
Doesn’t tell you what to think, just intelligent conversations on various topical issues of the moment.
While it feels like the world around us has done everything to polarize Americans,
this podcast does a great job of taking a step back and having discussions from an objective view. The hosts and guests do a great job of admitting their own argument flaws, making each episode easily digestible.
