In this week's episode of Our Voices Matter Podcast, a former Congressional intern takes us behind the scenes of the January 6th insurrection.
As our nation's Capitol descended into chaos, 24 year-old Sherman Tylawsky was locked down with members of Congress and their staffs.
Not exactly how he envisioned the third day of his internship.
What was he thinking? How did he get through it? What did he learn about himself and the state of our political discourse?
Tylawsky is a podcaster who calls himself a George Washington enthusiast and an aspiring statesman. He fully sees himself holding office one day, perhaps in those very halls of Congress.
Thus far, he has prepared for a life of public service by receiving a Master's degree in international affairs from the Bush School of Government at Texas A&M University and a Bachelor's degree in politics from King's College London.
He has also intentionally interned on both sides of the Congressional aisle.
Tylawsky's desire to learn about and understand all perspectives will, no doubt, provide invaluable experience in both his personal and political pursuits.
Our conversation unpacks his view of the chasms that divide us and the path to bringing us closer together.
All through the lens of that fateful day.
Join me as Sherman takes us behind the scenes of the January 6th insurrection.
