In this first podcast edition of the weekly Grassroot Perspective, we look at new Hawaii Senator Schatz and his quick adoption of the party line on filibuster reform, how shared political aims can make strange bedfellows–even among such seemingly disparate groups as and the Tea Party Patriots, and why the Grassroot Institute is so focused on moving UP (rather than discussing the Left and Right).

Listen below, and don’t miss the opportunity to submit questions (or possible topics) for next week.  Email your questions/suggestions to or simply add them in the comment section!
