It’s something of a mantra around the Political Theater podcast crew: Politics never sleeps.

The 2024 election season has been taking shape for a while now. Candidates are starting to announce they are running, people are retiring and strategists are test-driving issues they hope will click with voters.

Still. It is early. And there is a lot of time between now and the primaries that will record the first official votes of the 2024 election cycle. What’s a curious political animal to do? What should they be paying attention to? What thing that feels important now might fizzle by Election Day? What are some things we might not see coming?

Joining us to discuss how to predict the future is Nathan L. Gonzales, Roll Call’s elections analyst and the publisher of Inside Elections.
