Before I launched my first show, I was talking with a number of people who I wanted to have on the show as well as getting their suggestions for potential guests. Out of those conversations came one of my previous guests, Corey Hall. One of the others was Jayvie Arellano. He was a big time suggestion.
Now, I’m friends with Jayvie on Facebook and we used to hang around many of the same political convention and online social circles, but this episode was the first time that I got a chance to sit down and really talk with him and get to know him.
Jayvie is originally from the Philippines and moved to the United States just days before he turned 21. His early political leanings were shaped by the likes of The National Review, Rush Limbaugh and the Heritage Foundation. However, more recently, he’s taken a more pragmatic approach to politics after seeing the GOP squander its chances to achieve political success when they’ve controlled all or most branches of government. That doesn’t mean he’s switched parties or even left the GOP. There is so much more to Jayvie and this week he shares his story and so much more in part 1 of our conversation.
As a quick reminder, The Political Nomad is on all of the major podcasting platforms and the links are in the right hand sidebar. Please feel free to listen there and give this episode 5 stars and leave some reviews.
Finally, you’ll want to sign up for the Nomad News, the official newsletter of The Political Nomad! This week’s Newsletter exclusive Road Trip Spotify playlist is probably the most diverse playlist I’ve put together yet. It fits really well with Jayvie’s personality and features the likes of Taking Back Sunday, Great Northern, Alanis Morissette and cuts from musical scores like Pacific Rim, Game of Thrones, Star Trek: Picard and The Sims 4! It’s a great playlist.
