So, I am sure y'all know who Sean Astin is-- Goonies, Lord of the Rings, Rudy and most recently his own political radio show, Vox Populi.
Okay, so maybe you recognize the guy but didn't know about his radio show, Vox Populi. Sean is interested in politics, and he likes to get the casually political involved types talking about politics.
I occasionally talk about politics here, on my blog, because like Sean, I'm interested in politics. I come from a family that occasionally involves itself in local politics with each generation, and even though I leave running for office to the other folks in my family, I do see, enjoy and recognize the need to talk politics.
After hearing more about Sean's Vox Populi Radio show, which means "The Voice of the People in Latin, I knew it was something I would be interested in, and there are bound to be some of you that want to check it out. The Season 2 starts on May 1st on the new network, TradioV. Astin shares his interest of politics with "the occasionally interested people" and he genuinely wants people to understand what is happening in government and current affairs. The goal of the show really is to offer intellectual discussion, hear what people are talking about and what concerns them.
I can't wait for his first show, I have the feeling Missy will be listening in with me-- did I tell you my little sis is an elected official! Couldn't be prouder :)
His broadcast airs Thursdays 12-2PT on TradioV.com
