Podward State: Season 3, Episode 7

On this week’s episode of Podward State, hosts Matt Ogden, Matt Paolizzi, and Sam Brungo landed an interview with 2018 Candidate for Pennsylvania State Senate Ezra Nanes and Centre County Jury Commissioner Laura Shadle.

The political energy kept rolling after last week’s episode with photographer Oyoma Asinor. Nanes and Shadle have been involved with getting the vote out in the Centre County area and break down how to make sure your voice is heard come November 3.

With the voter registration deadline in Pennsylvania falling on October 19, it’s important to get your voting plan settled as soon as possible so you can participate in the democratic process on Election Day.

Shadle and Nanes described how crucial Pennsylvania is in the presidential race as a newly minted swing state, how important college students are to the political process, and how Centre County has responded to the massive voting efforts sweeping the country.
