S2E9: We Weren’t Kidding. It’s Bad.

November 30, 2017

We’re back, and it seems that the world is on fire. Jamie, Kristina, and Allison share the latest on tax reform, which is changing by the day. The news isn’t looking good for the sector and those we serve, but there is still time to take a stand. We also spend some time on other key issues we face before the year ends, including 2018 spending, DACA, CHIP, and net neutrality rule changes - and round it out with a call to find the hope and keep on fighting.

S2E7: Cookies and Vegetables

September 28, 2017

Repeal and replace – dead for now? What should we make of the new tax reform blueprint and the impact of the whole process on the charitable community and those we serve?

Kristina and Jamie are joined this episode by Heather Meade of Washington Council, Ernst & Young for a post mortem on the latest health care efforts, a look ahead on tax reform, and reminder that the sweet policy treats offered in talking points by policymakers will eventually give way to much tougher (and sometimes tasteless) realities when it’s time to legislate.

Recess is over. Is it ever. Kristina and Jamie return after a long August to recap the latest from Washington and what the last 30 days may tell us about the rest of the year for tax reform, federal spending, health care, and the vitality of our sector.

Ask not for whom the recess bell tolls, because, well, we hope you know the rest. As Members of Congress head to their home districts this month, Jamie and Allison (filling in for Kristina this week) share why nonprofits should take advantage of the opportunity to share their stories on their home turf. Before our policy wonks get into some tips and resources to tee up your August conversations with policymakers, Jamie and Allison walk through the latest news from Capitol Hill, including the long road ahead for federal spending and tax reform (not to mention action on the Johnson Amendment that might come with it).

S2E1: Back from the Beltway

June 15, 2017

Has it really only been five weeks? Kristina and Jamie return following a brief hiatus to catch up on a number of issues of importance on the federal policy landscape for the charitable community from spending and health care to tax reform (yes, it’s still on deck). They also preview the “plan” for Season 2 and respond to listener feedback from the first season. Note: This episode was recorded prior to the tragic shooting at the congressional GOP baseball practice on Wednesday, June 14. Kristina and Jamie – and the entire IS family – were horrified by this event and send our best wishes of recovery and peace to all affected. While we are committed to delivering our unique style each episode, we also take seriously the responsibility of being part of a solution that encourages better and more open discourse in this country. We hope you’ll join us in this effort as part of Season 2.
