Fair pay, binders, dinner, and women! During this show we discuss and analyze the second Presidential debate from what the "binders" moment meant, to what the candidate's body language told us about what they're really thinking.  We uncover new polling data, and talk about undecided voters with a rock star pollster. And we even learn about the latest political Halloween costumes--and how you can make them (Want to be a, ahem, "binder"?).

On this show we explore key takeaways from the 1st Presidential debate of 2012--from an interview with a media coach about what the candidates did right (and wrong); to a cutting edge conversation about how Twitter is impacting candidates and traditional media; how women's reproductive health issues are being used as political footballs; and also how to talk with your kids about the birth control topics that candidates debate; and closing with how to get engaged and have an impact on November 6th.  It's a great show!

As the November 6th general election draws near, candidates across the country are talking about the issues they think will get them the most votes.  But are they missing out on important topics?  Let's face it women comprise more than half the electorate, yet too often the top priority issues of women are missing from center stage.

On this show we explore the priority topics, issues, and policies for women that are missing from the spotlight with pollsters, experts, advocates, and moms.
