About this Episode

Have you ever felt alienated by politics, or like you don't belong? Pete Buttigieg has a message for you. We cover his victory speech in Iowa in this fascinating look at how to frame liberal ideas.

Listen to this episode to find out:

  • The hypnotic technique of conscious / unconscious dissociation and how Pete uses it here to contrast knowing with not knowing
  • False choices set up through calls to action and cause and effect languaging
  • How Pete empowers the listener; but is it truly them or what they've voted for?
  • The politician that Pete has been watching at home while learning how to be more persuasive
  • Evoking a feeling through artfully vague language and non-specified predicates--How Pete makes them think their feelings are about him.
  • And more!
