This week’s video of the…week…features Jared Polis, the internet wonderboy & Congressional Candidate who with a motley crew of fellow liberals has helped turn Colorado (which literally means “red earth”) blue over the last few years. We’re featuring this interview because, while Jared makes for a great interview, this video shows just how far “elevision,” our talk show, has come over the past 9 months. We’ve moved, physically, from the backyard of a lovely café to the stage of a historic theater—and the interviewer has learned to streamline his ever-digressing mind and bad jokes, making for harder, better, faster, stronger interviews.
