While Peter Schorsch holds many titles — blogger, consultant and editor-in-chief of Florida Politics, the most influential political website in the Sunshine State — the one which he’s proudest is “husband and father.” That’s what makes his new podcast so exciting: Peter’s co-host, a woman every bit as accomplished as he is — his wife, Michelle Todd Schorsch. “He Said, She Said” has Peter and Michelle — previously a respected political consultant, now the CEO of the bustling Schorsch household — discussing the driving topics of the day, especially how politics really goes down in Florida. But the political talk is just a jumping off point to a wide-range of subject matter, from the latest in pop culture to some very strong opinions on family life and parenting. Listen in to hear how one political couple balances it all.
On this episode of He Said, She Said, Peter and Michelle welcome Florida Education Commissioner Richard Corcoran to the show. Corcoran makes a case for school choice, talks transformational changes to education in the DeSantis administration, and defends against school choice critics. Our hosts reveal their initial 2020 presidential picks and Michelle says she'll officially go from red to blue to vote in the primary. Peter talks to many special House races to watch throughout the state, as well as the upcoming Tampa mayoral election. Finally, this week's Veep recap and Peter's hot take on Game of Thrones and Avengers.
"We haven't seen since Jeb Bush a very strong conservative idealogical governor who is really passionate about education." - Richard Corcoran, Education Commissioner
"We've studied because we've had the Florida Tax Scholarships for over a decade, overwhelmingly 40 percent more likely to go to college than the group they left behind... But group left behind also improved." - Richard Corcoran, Education Commissioner
Day 2 of education roll outs with the boldest, #1 education Governor in the nation @GovRonDeSantis. Florida will have the best standards, best civics education, and be the most literate state in the nation! https://t.co/Yk2hRS44te
