I read about Ben Panico recently and thought he was someone making a difference, and someone I’d enjoy having on the podcast. I was right. Listen as Ben and I chat about working on Capitol Hill, his job as an intern, first at the Victory Institute, and now in Rep. Jared Polis’s office, and his experience as the only openly transgender staffer currently on the Hill. Ben works with the Equality Caucus on issues important to LGBT Americans and intends to keep that as a focus as his career moves forward. You can see a YouTube clip with Ben from Fusion HERE.
