On this episode of The Gap, Tammy and Althea start by musing on the passage of time. We discuss the first ever virtual Democratic National Convention --  credit where credit is due, but it was a little awkward. We find an occasion to revisit the 'Howard Dean Scream' and you bet we do impressions. 

What does it take to get to speak at a major party political convention? We raise an eyebrow at Bill Clinton at the DNC, and Elizabeth Warren speaking to the Native American Caucus and the 15-minutes-of-fame racists who will be trotted out at the RNC. 

Are political conventions always like this or are we just paying more attention?

Plus, we take your calls!

Special thanks to our engineer, Sonia Battrell
