Emily Tisch Sussman has been at the forefront of executing strategy for the progressive movement in America for more than a decade. She is a leading democratic political strategist with over 200 appearances on MSNBC, CNN, Fox News, HLN, and CBS, and nearly 100 in the past year. Her views are also frequently featured in national news outlets including The New York Times, Newsweek, Reuters, and Politico.
Emily is the host of popular politics podcast Your Presidential Playlist, formerly Your Primary Playlist, a guide to the 2020 presidential election that quickly became a must-listen for those tapped into politics. The podcast features all women guests including Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Hillary Clinton, Stacey Abrams, and Cecile Richards, has received several features on Apple Podcasts and Stitcher, and was named one of Refinery29’s Best New Podcasts for 2020.
Emily’s January 2020 interview with Hillary Clinton made headlines in The New York Times, The Washington Post, POLITICO, The Hill, and several other outlets, driving a 48-hour news cycle in the midst of the Senate impeachment trial and the weekend leading up to the Iowa caucuses.
Her May 2020 live podcast recording with Senator Cory Booker at the 92Y was viewed by more than 70,000 people in 120 countries. The show was called “required listening for any Democrat” by the National Field Director for Swing Left and “an in-depth policy brief with context around the democratic evolution on these issues” by a national political reporter for a major news outlet.
In 2019, Emily launched ETS Advisory which allows her to work directly with advocates across the country to drive progressive change through legislation, advocacy, the electoral process, and policy development.
She has had the opportunity to provide counsel to organizations including Change the Ref, an initiative sponsored by March For Our Lives; Town Hall Project; the Baker Project, which is a part of Eleanor’s Legacy; Funny or Die: Glam Up the Midterms; and Vote Vets.
