May 19th was the one-year anniversary of The Road to Now, so we invited our good friends/RTN contributors Matt Negrin and Alex Trowbridge to join us in taking a look at where the road has turned since we launched in 2016. A year ago, Matt and Alex worked at Bloomberg Politics. Today Matt is a Digital Producer for The Daily Show and Alex is a Producer for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. A year ago, The Road to Now was just Bob Crawford and Ben Sawyer, but now we have Ian Skotte. Also, we have a different President now.
We’d like to thank everyone for the support they’ve given us in this first year! We’re going to take a few weeks to develop ideas we’ve been working on, and to schedule some great guests for season 2. We’ll keep your feed going these next weeks with some of our favorite episodes from the last year, and we’ll be back with all-new episodes on Monday, July 10th.
In the meantime, please let us know if there are any questions you’d like us to answer, or if there’s a guest you think would be a great fit for our show. You can email us at RoadToNowCast@gmail.com or tweet at us at @Road_To_Now.
We look forward to sharing our new episodes with you on Monday, July 10th!
