The Bulwark presents a live taping of The Next Level podcast hosted by Sarah Longwell, Tim Miller, and Jonathan V. Last, featuring special guest Dan Savage.
After a crucial midterm election where voters rejected the most extreme MAGA candidates across the country, the gang from The Bulwark — the home of the Never Trump movement — will gather in Seattle to look ahead at what to expect with the new divided Congress and the culture wars in the states. What’s ahead in the fight for the soul of the GOP and what should we expect from a Republican lead House? Will Biden run again and will Republican primary voters reject another Trump run for the Presidency?
Tim Miller will take the stage with Seattle legend Dan Savage, the “Savage Love” advice columnist and host of The Savage Lovecast podcast. The two will grill each other on politics and sex, and audience members will be encouraged to ask Tim and Dan their own questions about either. Or both! Plan to stick around after the program to meet fellow Bulwark members, staff, and friends.
