Clay Aiken To Host Political Podcast
Politicon and KMG Utopia Studios have launched a new weekly show with Aiken called “How The Heck Are We Gonna Get Along.
The former American Idol runner-up also ran for a Democrat House seat in North Carolina. He did not win.
Each one-hour episode features a panel representing all sides of the political spectrum who will answer questions from a live studio audience…

Politicon Podcast Set to Launch on iHeartRadio with Aiken
“I can’t remember any point in my lifetime when we’ve been so divided as a country,” said Aiken. “We’ve withdrawn into our own respective ideological corners and folks are having a hard time being in the same room with each other, much less listening to each other. I think pundits, politicians and politicos want to fight and argue, but the general public is sick of the media spin and would like to see something actually get done. What I’m excited about with this new show is the opportunity to not only put people with differing positions into a room together, but also make them face a live audience’s questions.”
…”We debuted ‘How The Heck Are We Gonna Get Along!’ as a panel at the very first Politicon in 2015, and it’s been a staple every year since,” added Politicon co-founder Simon Sidi. “It’s an important topic as there’s certainly a lot of divisiveness to repair. Now in 2020, when politics feels more polarizing than ever, we’re excited to unveil the concept as a podcast with a live studio audience asking the questions.”

Thanks @Politicon for the invite to the inaugural podcast of “How the Heck Are We Gonna Get Along?” The panelists were whip-smart and downright funny and @clayaiken is the perfect host for this show. Can’t wait for the episode to drop!

Clay Aiken was surprisingly a great moderator in the last Policon videos I saw, so it’s good to see him hosting this… I will note that I don’t agree with the candidates he supports for president, nor do I think he’s a real progressive. He simply was better than almost any moderator I’ve ever saw host a debate.
He’s fantastic! I’m so happy I got to meet him, and so glad he’s the one moderating
