Ep. 12 of LBC Podcast -- Jeff Jackson, NC State Senator, 37th District

**If you're new to podcasts, check out the explanation at the bottom of the page**

Jeff Jackson in Afganistan 
In this episode, we talk with Senator Jeff Jackson of NC Senate District 37. Jeff talks about the realities of being a Democratic Senator in a state government that's beholden to far right interests and how he's fighting for an independent commission to redraw district lines to better reflect the bipartisan realities of the state.

Jeff talks about how a master's degree in philosophy and his experience as a state prosecutor make him a better senator. He also breaks down the North Carolina gubernatorial election and gives tips on finding the humanity in local politics.
