In the latest Drinking Partners release, Ed and Day get political with community activist and philanthropist Aerion Andrew Abney, who is running to become the State Representative for Pennsylvania’s 19th District (Allegheny County). From the first series of questions, it becomes clear that the interview will be a complex, insightful glance into the interconnection of politics and community and how Pittsburgh’s emergence can continue without negatively displacing its residents and its culture. At the heart of the discussion is the concept of listening before attempting to lead, an idea that the trio examines with far-reaching depth. Midway through, listeners will notice Ed and Day break from the serious for some Drinking Partners revelry before questioning Mr. Abney about his plans for Pittsburgh and his plans for modernizing government and raising expectations for politicians.
