Podcast | Nation Hahn: Politics & The Prism of Loss

Nation Hahn is one of those guys that seems to know everybody, especially in state political circles. By the time I met him in early 2013, it was clear that he and his wife Jamie were poised to make a huge impact on North Carolina.

Then something happened that changed Nation’s approach to politics. Something happened that changed everything.

If by chance you don’t know, it’ll become clear through our conversation.  But this episode isn’t about that day. It’s about right now.

Today, Nation is the Chief Growth Officer for EdNC.org and the Board President of the Jamie Kirk Hahn Foundation, a non-profit developing leaders on issues like poverty, hunger, and public education.

“There’s joy in finding common ground. There’s joy in understanding that our solutions do not have to come from either political party, that our solutions instead can come from well-meaning, well-intentioned, hard-working people who are on the ground and who see a problem and set out to solve it."
