Caucus Land podcast hosted by Clay Masters and Kate Payne
Caucus Land

It’s an important responsibility being first in the nominating process, and Iowans take it seriously. Candidates take us seriously too. From diners to coffee shops, living rooms to the state fair, they spend a year's worth of time listening, responding and working to convince caucus-goers that they are the one person best prepared to be President of the United States. After all that work, Iowans caucus — and a few candidates’ trips to the White House are one step closer. Join Iowa Public Radio hosts Clay Masters and Kate Payne to get a view into Iowa — into Caucus Land — as the road to the White House begins!
