    Joe Hagan is a writer for Vanity Fair. His reporting and writing have taken him from the jungles of Singapore to The 21 Club, and from “tanking” Beto O’Rourke’s announcement to sipping white wine poolside with Jann Wenner and Annie Lebowitz. In this episode he takes us through all of that and more!

    His byline has appeared in almost every notable general audience magazine that MEN like your humble hosts subscribed to in the 1990s and early 2000s, including Esquire, Rolling Stone, GQ and many other now defunct taste making zines.

     He is the author of “Sticky Fingers” the authorized biography of Rolling Stone founder Jann Wenner, and the co-host of VF’s “Inside The Hive” podcast with Emily Jane Fox

     Dave likes to focus on how his career could have been akin to this, instead of cueing in on the wild and wooly adventures his own career has provided – many of which have made amazing fodder for the show and for our guests.

    Greg Bluestein is a reporter for the Atlanta Journal Constitution (AJC) an analyst for MSNBC and recently published the definitive book on the 2020 election in the state of Georgia - Flipped How Georgia Turned Purple And Broke The Monopoly On Republican Power.

    He is also a friend of the show, a mensch, and a fellow graduate of the 2021 CFP National Champion The University of Georgia! 

    With Georgia solidly purple, and set to be ground zero in The Battle to Re-Fight 2020 and the swingiest of swing states in 2022 and 2024, Greg has a front row seat to observe the strategy and tactics of the best (and some of the worst) campaigns and political operations in the country on both sides of the aisle. 

    If you want the straight dope on what matters, what it means, and who done it, Greg’s book is a must read, and his Twitter, AJC work and Politically Georgia podcast are all must-follows.

    Roy Barnes (D-Mableton) served as the 80th Governor of The State of Georgia from 1999-2003

    Barnes is a 1970 graduate of 2021 College Football National Champions The University of Georgia and a 1972 graduate of 2021 College Football National Champions The University of Georgia School of Law. 

    He was the most recent Democrat to be elected to The Governor’s office, and the last in an unbroken string of members of the Democratic Party to hold the office dating back to The Civil War. He is also currently the only Governor not to be re-elected since the law was changed to allow governors to fill two consecutive 4 year terms in 1974. 

    Barnes was the youngest member of the State Senate when he was elected at 26 and served from 1974-1990 from Mableton.

    During his tenure in the state senate, Barnes served floor leader to Governor Joe Frank Harris, and was appointed chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee. 

    After running unsuccessfully for the nomination for Governor in 1990 - where he came in third in the primary to Zell Miller and Maynard Jackson - he served 6 years in the General Assembly from 1992-1998. 

    In 1998 he beat Republican Guy Milner 53-44 to become the 80th Governor of Georgia. 

    (Sidebar: This was Milner’s third consecutive statewide race, in which he lost all three! He lost the Governor’s race to Zell in 1994, the Senate to Max Cleland in 1996 and to Roy in 1998) 

    He was the most recent Democrat to be elected to The Governor’s office, and the last in an unbroken string of members of the Democratic Party to hold the office dating back to The Civil War. He is also currently the only Governor not to be re-elected since the law was changed to allow governors to fill two consecutive 4 year terms in 1974. 

    As Governor, Barnes championed Ethics Reform, Education Reform and Transportation Funding, but his term has always been defined by the controversy surrounding Georgia’s state flag. He accomplished something even Zell Miller couldn’t, and removed the Confederate Battle Flag from Georgia’s State Flag (officially the 1956 flag). Voters punished him dearly for it in 2002, though larger structural issues and party realignment, especially below the gnat line, played a large part in the 02 election. 

    According to the February 2004 issue of Georgia Trend, "Democrat Roy Barnes was one of the most powerful governors in history. His nickname 'King Roy' was an affectionate term accorded him by supporters because he knew how to pull the levers and make things happen in the legislature."

    In 2003 he was awarded the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation Profile in Courage Award link: Roy Barnes | JFK Library

    He remains managing partner of The Barnes Law Group

Great Podcast for a non-podcaster

This is my first podcast experience and it is one that I can connect with on multiple levels. I have turned my wife onto it as well. Great hosts, interesting guests, and unique perspectives by all. I look forward to the next episode!
