This letter comes from Countable’s Managing Editor, Andrea Seabrook
It is too hard.
Too hard to figure out what to do. Too hard to make a difference -- in politics, in representation, in government. That's what makes YOU so incredible -- you're doing it anyway. But for most people,
It’s just too hard to care.
That's why we're introducing The Daily Dose, a quick-study podcast that tells you what your government is doing and what you can do about it. It’s the next step in our mission at Countable, to disrupt ‘normal’ political culture, and get people thinking again.
In just a few weeks of beta-production, The Daily Dose has already tackled unexpected and critical questions such as, “Should animal cruelty be a felony?” “What’s the difference between global warming and climate change?” and, “Is Trump’s cabinet unconstitutional?”
Please subscribe to the podcast and share this letter. Our hope is that Countable and The Daily Dose will help restore what I believe are the foundational ideals of American society: disagreement is natural, debate is sacred, and compromise is holy.
All My Best,
