The Political Life - from campaigns to capitols and everywhere in between. A show about the people whose lives are immersed in the political world, and how they got there. Politicians, lobbyists, pollsters, and business people. If they're on the show, they're living the political life.

Hosted by Jim O'Brien, The Political Life introduces you to the personalities and "day in the life" experiences of some of the most interesting and dynamic individuals in the field.

Eric Tanenblatt is the Global Chair of Public Policy and Regulation at Dentons, the world's largest law firm. He also leads the firm's US Public Policy Practice, leveraging his three decades of experience at the very highest levels of the federal and state governments.

Eric also heads up the firm’s 50-state practice. To name just a few of his accomplishments, Eric has served in the administration of three U.S. Presidents, as senior advisor to U.S. Senators and Governors, and helped coordinate the 2004 G8 Economic Summit, which was hosted in Sea Island, Georgia.

In Georgia, Eric also served as chief of staff to the former Governor Sonny Perdue. Because of his deep roots in Republican politics in the state, Eric updated Jim on recent activity in the Georgia state legislative session, and provided some insight into the gubernatorial and senate races there.

This is part one of a two part conversation, and next week Jim and Eric will chat about Eric’s past work helping disruptive companies navigate the complicated laws and regulations surrounding the innovation economy – with a particular focus placed on Eric’s work and writing around autonomous vehicles.
