EWhile most of the candidates are either celebrating or conceding in New Hampshire, one former front runner is conspicuously absent from a party in his honor. In this special episode, produced in the midnight hours after the 2020 N.H. primary, we take you to a campaign headquarters that’s missing its candidate, and speculate what the election results may mean for the future of the New Hampshire primary.

What's It Worth?

There is nothing New Hampshire is more famous for than the presidential primary. And that fame has a value of its own. A value greater than dollars spent or earned. In this episode, we try to answer the question: How does that value help to explain this state’s stranglehold on the presidential nominating process?

Well, we've run into Gardner several times since we started this podcast. And he had some interesting things to say about our reporting, as well as politics, diversity, and ongoing threats to the New Hampshire Primary, Stranglehold is possible because of listener support.
