Welcome to the 55th episode of The Weekly Brew podcast – this week, digital media strategist Vincent Harris of Harris Media and Cole Walowac of EDM group Capital Kings join us on the show.

First, Austin and Kevin discuss the recent USA Today/Amway Coaches Poll rankings in college football, and preview the opening slate of NCAA games. How much do the rankings mean or matter at this point? Who are some of the early Heisman hopefuls?

Next, Vincent Harris, whose Harris Media digital strategy firm has worked for such political figures as Rand Paul, Mitch McConnell, Ted Cruz and – most recently – Donald Trump, calls in to talk about the impact and role of social media in this election cycle, with Republicans stepping up their digital game to compete with the success of President Obama’s social media reach in the last two presidential elections. Harris also delves into what social media does to political discourse in what is proving to be an especially fractured, disparate electorate this year.

Finally, Cole Walowac, producer and rapper for EDM group Capital Kings, joins us to talk about making music and EDM in advance of CK’s Aug. 25 show in Houston.

As always, thanks for listening, and please, if you enjoy the show, share it with your friends and definitely feel free – even compelled – to leave a review on iTunes.
