Join PoP on TV

Posted by David Postman at 7:48 AM

I hope you'll help me in a little experiment. Following the Democratic presidential debate Monday night, The Seattle Times and TVW will hold a live, call-in program. The show will air on TVW and be webcast at The debate is the CNN YouTube debate with questions from YouTube submissions.

The debate airs on CNN from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Then, switch channels or go to, for the post-game show. I will host the program with Times columnist and all around smart guy Danny Westneat. We have some interesting guests lined up to talk about the candidates' performance as well as to explore whether this really was a revolution in political dialogue.

Here's what you need to do: Watch the debate, then turn to TVW, call me live or send a question from (You will be able to submit questions from the site beginning at 4 p.m. Monday. The phones will go live at 6 p.m. and you can reach us at either 866-511-1103 or 866-511-1107.)

I would really like to hear some of our regulars on the air. This is your chance to argue with me and Danny in real time. Just think, we could hear Hinton and Particleman duke it out live.

And we'll do it again in September when Republicans have their YouTube moment.

I wrote last month about my doubts that the debate will signal any sort of revolution, no matter what all the hype says. I'll have more to say on that between now and Monday night.
