Dirty Moderate with Adam Epstein is a podcast showcasing the people who cut through the nails on a chalkboard din of the modern-day American political scene. We promote rigorous analysis and lively debate with individuals on both sides of the aisle and beyond. Our host, Adam Epstein, is a Tony Award-winning former Broadway powerhouse with a no-nonsense Ivy League Masters (Brown University Class of 2017 AM American Studies) who can go toe-to-toe with anyone on politics as he did on Trish Regan Primetime on FOX News every Thursday night in 2019 as the lone non-conservative panelist delivering his centrist perspective with grit, intellectual prowess, and undeniable charm. Past guests of the podcast like Author and Historian, Ruth Ben-Ghiat, Author, John Pavlovitz, and Correspondent, Trish Regan, and former Republican Strategist, Stuart Stevens, all range in perspective by design, and no two conversations are alike, but the one vitally important thing all of our guests have in common is they fight like hell for Democracy. • Produced by Blurry Cowboy Media • Theme Song by @brettgarrisonepstein • Subscribe to Substack at • Tweet the Show: @dirtymoderate

Co-Founder of The Lincoln Project. GOP political consultant; Latino voting trends/political data/analysis, and as close as political royalty as it gets here in America, Mike Madrid was, is, and we imagine, will continue to be, ahead of the curve. Earning his GOP pedigree over thirty years, by changing the outcomes of political campaigns throughout the country. His involvement in local, state, and federal races reaped a keen and some would say, unmatched level of insight into the successful characteristics of winning campaigns. A nationally recognized expert on Latino voting trends, Mike joins Adam in a conversation tracking the Latino vote, his career, the rise and fall of the GOP. Don’t miss a moment.
