CTCW Show: Political Sorcery Sara Mastros
Join Sara Mastros to discuss practical strategies for political witchcraft. She’ll talk about strategies to protect the integrity of the election, improve efficiency at the polls, propagandistic witchcraft, and strategies to sway individual voters. This show will be driven by audience questions and participation. We hope to see you there!
