The Get More Smarter Podcast: Ghosted (Feat. Charles Ashby)

Charles Ashby of The Grand Junction Daily Sentinel

This week on Episode #73 of The Get More Smarter Podcast, hosts Jason Bane and Ian Silverii discuss the pending birth of our newest Congressional district. We also learn that people kinda like having a functioning government; that Republicans like pretending that there is a “War on Meat;” and that a certain State Representative was once a Congressional candidate in California.

But those are just appetizers for the main event: Our discussion with Charles Ashby, political reporter for The Grand Junction Daily Sentinel and the dean (probably) of the State Capitol Press Corps. Ashby catches us up on a ton of political news and tells us what happens every time he contacts the press office of Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-ifle).

    Yes, follow "Loren" around and ask him why everyone thinks he lives in a PO Box in Penrose. News media continually identify him as being from Penrose – but he can't live in and represent Penrose because a DIFFERENT Republican represents Penrose (and it's a very small, unincorporated community).

    Why doesn't Ashby tell GJ Sentinel readers what happens when he calls Boebert's office?

    I appreciated his kind comments regarding Andrew.  Thanks, Charles.
