Coffee with Congress

Coffee with Congress

Welcome to Coffee with Congress, a new podcast by the Veterans Education Project where we get to know members of Congress and key government officials. Every episode we ask questions that have nothing to do with politics, policy, or legislation. Instead, we focus on getting to know the real person behind the office. Join us as we talk to your elected members of Congress and get their take on things you wouldn't normally get to know.
