In an act of corporate synergy, I traveled across the Potomac River Wednesday to tape the political show Story Conference, hosted by political reporter Chris Cillizza. Matt Mosk, who writes about money and politics for the Post, was also there. We discussed the politics of gun control, the Supreme Court abortion decision, and what we found interesting in the candidates' FEC filings. Click on the video player below to launch.
