About This Episode:
Jennifer Briney started paying attention to world events, while studying in Germany in the spring of 2003, when the United States overthrew the government of Iraq. After experiencing the war from outside the United States, she started asking questions about her government. Every answer led to fifty more questions. This led to a thirst for information that she is still unable to quench.
After finishing her Communications Degree at Loyola Marymount University, Jen started watching C-SPAN in order to get raw, unfiltered information about how Congress was changing our laws. After watching a Congressman slip a provision protecting secret campaign contributions into an Energy and Water funding law (and bragging about it on the floor of the House of Representatives), Jen was stunned to discover that not a single television station, newspaper, or even blog covered the scandal. She wondered how often this happened and started reading the Congressional Record. It turned out that this happens all the time.
Over the years, the feeling like she was the only person paying attention to this information was making Jen insane so in late 2012, she launched Congressional Dish in order to share the information, to have an emotional outlet for dealing with the discoveries, and to create a community of people who were interested in Congress’s effect on our lives. Congressional Dish is now her full-time career, thanks entirely to the support from our growing community of producers from all over the world.
