About this Episode

On this episode we take a look at Joe Biden's recent 2020 campaign rally in Philadelphia. Biden has been a favorite to run for many people, and we see how he leans upon this strengths and dismisses his weaknesses in this speech. Listen to this episode to learn:

  • Why Biden's theme music was so carefully chosen for this venue, and what it conveys
  • Historical framing back to Abraham Lincoln, the Statue of Liberty, and the Declaration of Independence, and how he uses these to create a nostalgic effect in the listener
  • The brilliant way that Biden's advisors have crafted for him to be tough on Trump and also not get into a name-calling contest
  • Biden's vision of America: A beacon of hope that will not be extinguished on his watch
  • The values that all Pennsylvanians ascribe to, and why Biden's quote of a famous poet reveals his affinity for another state
  • The Moderate's way of acknowledging the LGBT communtity and women's movement
  • Why Trump is not the only one trafficking in division, but is still the "Divider in Chief".
  • Biden's 3 reasons for running, and how all of them are abstract promises that can fit any agenda
  • How Biden intends to compromise with Republicans in order to "make government work" and at the same time, enact a progressive agenda
  • How he utilizes a "reverse" call and response tactic in order to work up the crowd
  • And more!
