A few days after the midterms, a Substack post from Dave Karpf caught the eye of the Democracy Works podcast team. Karpf takes up the question of how the Republican and Democratic parties should move forward after the election. The conversation covers party networks, Karpf's lessons from environmental organizing, and how to craft political messages in a changing social media environment.
Karpf is an associate professor in the School of Media and Public Affairs at the George Washington University. His work focuses on strategic communication practices of political associations in America, with a particular interest in Internet-related strategies.
