Hot Pizza Ass with Erin Darling Torralva


Feb 10, 2020

This week's episode is a conversation with Ben Gleib - comedian, actor, host and former Presidential candidate, in his first in-depth interview after completing his run for office just a few weeks ago. He gives us a fascinating inside look at what life is really like on the grueling campaign trail. Ben put his life as a comedian on hold for 8 months in an attempt to do something for the country fueled by his belief that we are in dire need of change and better leadership - a belief that many Americans share. But does our democracy actually support change when money and special interest groups heavily influence who gets a voice in our political process?

 
Conversation topics include: How money and big business affects politics, getting priced out of the big leagues, getting arrested while protesting in Washington DC, who was a dick on the campaign trail, behind the scenes stories including his most embarrassing (hilarious) moment of the campaign, platforms he believes in, perspective on the current election, and what it's like to come back to normal life as comic, social media censorship and our Orwellian future.
 
And if he would ever do it again...
