The Political Left

Both Sides of the Aisle – Natalie Gochnour is joined on The Right by Sen. Dan McCay, R-Riverton, and on The Left by Shireen Ghorbani, Salt Lake County Council member. For the last three weeks of 2020, we will be getting to know our hosts better. This week, Dan and Natalie ask Shireen about her upbringing in North Dakota, her parents meeting in Iran, going to Moldova with the Peace Corp. after college and her first impressions of Utah. They also discuss Shireen’s views on the spectrum of left-wing politics, the need to focus on kitchen-table issues, political role models and mentors, lessons from the pandemic, liberalism and progressivism and what’s next in 2021.
