10. All About Congress with Congressional Staffer Allison Feikes

In this episode of the podcast, Mackenzie sits down to chat with congressional policy advisor/legislative assistant Allison Feikes. You may know Allison from her social media ventures such as TikTok, but Allison gives us a great inside look at what goes on in congress, and all sorts of ways that members of the community can stay involved and active in government. Allison and Mackenzie talk about getting a job on the hill, funny congress traditions, how things in congress change due to elections, and the hardest and best parts of the job.

  1. Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m looking to start my own blog in the near
    future but I’m having a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

  2. Currently it seems like Expression Engine is the preferred
    blogging platform available right now. (from what I’ve read)
    Is that what you’re using on your blog?

  16. Everything posted was very reasonable. However, consider
    this, suppose you were to write a killer headline? I mean,
    I don’t want to tell you how to run your website, but what if you added a title
    that makes people desire more? I mean 10. All About Congress
    with Congressional Staffer Allison Feikes ~ The Fascinating Jobs Podcast is kinda vanilla.
    You could look at Yahoo’s home page and note how
    they write article headlines to grab people interested.
    You might add a related video or a picture or two
    to get readers interested about what you’ve got to say.
    Just my opinion, it would bring your website a little livelier.
