About The Show

Host Michael Sheehan's ability to help people communicate at the highest level was dubbed by New York Magazine as "the Sheehan effect." With breaking news happening constantly, Sheehan looks outside the 24/7 news cycle to wonder what politicians can learn from professional wrestlers. How politicians can get laughs, intentionally, with advice from renowned comedians. And how losing candidates can be turned into winning ones with insight from legendary professional sports coaches. It's politics, policy, and people through Alice’s looking glass.
