Republicans talk in headlines, Democrats speak in fine print, so how can those on the Left do a better job of messaging? Last December, Ben Meiselas, host of "The MeidasTouch" podcast, joined us to talk about creating an effective political message and why many Democrats are lousy at it.

Plus, Rep. Katie Porter shared her approach for selling the American public on the Build Back Better Act.
