Even though we're in the midst of the Republican National Convention, there were a few more people who we interviewed at the Democratic National Convention last week.
We spoke with Eddie Rodriguez, a young delegate from New York City, who gave us his perspective on why this election year and specifically the DNC was so exciting to him.
Ari and Brian were from 236.com and were at the DNC with New York City based comedian Eugene Mirman showing us a lighter and funnier look at the convention. I chatted with them briefly about their experience as independent media folk.
This week a lot has come out of the RNC in Minneapolis St. Paul. The Uptake is right smack in the middle of all of the action. With Democracy Now! host and journalist Amy Goodman recently arrested while covering the protests, things are getting pretty crazy. Stay tuned.
