Rethinking with Alex Torpey
Ep 16: Andrew Cuomo and the epidemic of politicians who are experts at saying the right things
/

Join former mayor, municipal manager, professor, and consultant Alex Torpey for the latest episode of Rethinking, filmed in the Custer Gallatin National Forest, Montana. 



As another so called progressive democrat begins their fall from grace, I wanted to spend a moment reflecting on why we seem to have so many freaking politicians who don’t do the right things, but who instead just say the right things, and then do the wrong things. Where does this come from? Why does it keep happening? And what’s *our* responsibility in making things work differently?


Join me in exploring some of these dynamics, their evolutionary and cultural histories, and a few strategies that may help us think about how we hold ourselves, each other, and our political leaders accountable.
