The Five and Five is a political podcast hosted by Patrick Shane. The podcast will discuss 5 things that are happening in politics and 5 ways it will affect everyday life. Our goal is to inform the listener of the ramifications of policies and give a different perspective to consider.

A little bit about me, I am a previous black republican who voted for Bush twice. Through some of the policies and decisions of that administration I became a self described independent. I volunteered and donated to the Obama for America campaign and felt like I was a part of something. Like many, I took the progress made by President Obama’s administration for granted and, even though I voted for Hillary Clinton, I could have and should have done more.
