Episode 12: Rubio's Underdog Strategy — Kristin and Tim are joined by Scott Bland, Editor-in-Chief of National Journal Hotline, to talk about Hillary Clinton's doomed bid to start small, Marco Rubio's smart money strategy, and the far-right's plan to beat the establishment candidate. The hosts also discuss how candidates are dividing their best strategic minds between their campaigns and the Super PACs.

Episode 9: First Out of the Gate — Ted Cruz announced his candidacy this week and the hosts assess what this means for the rest of the Republican field. Will Jeb Bush have an edge as Cruz drags the field to the right? And what about that new Florida primary date -- is it an advantage or a terrible gamble for the Bush camp?

Episode 8: The March Madness Episode — In this episode, Kristin, Tim and Shane debate Scott Walker's loose commitment to his positions and his staff, which contenders are hiring the best people and Chris Christie's dismal numbers. Plus, as the NCAA tournament gets underway, Tim and Shane dissect candidates' brackets with the help of special guest Josh Kraushaar.

Episode 7: Email Fallout: Do Democrats have another option? — Hillary Clinton hosted a lousy press conference this week to explain her deletion of over 30,000 emails from the account she used while working as secretary of State. Kristin, Shane and Tim regroup to discuss how the controversy affects Democrats' 2016 calculations.

Episode 6: Clinton's sticky email problem, the struggle between Republican candidates and the Republican Congress, and Ben Carson's stance on prisons - — Kristin, Shane and Alex regroup this week to discuss the Hillary Clinton email scandal sweeping the news, which key donors Republicans are fighting to win over- while Jeb Bush has already started to turn away money- and how this Congress is making life difficult for Republicans with eyes on the White House.

Episode 5: The CPAC Episode — It's CPAC week and Kristin and Shane are joined by guest host Alex Roarty, The Hotline's chief political correspondent, to discuss the significance of the conference, Jeb Bush's place in the crowd, and Rand Paul's increasing isolation from his own party.

Episode 04: Bush's family legacy, Clinton's foreign donors, and Hotline's presidential power rankings — In this week's episode, Jeb embraces the Bush family if not the Bush name, the Clintons stumble into trouble over foreign friends, a megadonor embarrasses Rand Paul, and the GOP field gets shuffled in Hotline's latest presidential power rankings. And at the end, learn why Rick Perry and Ted Cruz might want to crosscheck their donor lists.

Episode 3: Walker's dodge, Bush's hiring mistake, and Paul's foreign policy problem — This week, Kristin Roberts, Shane Goldmacher and Tim Alberta discuss Scott Walker's evolution slip, Jeb Bush's not-so-tech-savvy hiring mistake, Hillary Clinton and the wait for her campaign launch, whether there is any meaning at all in having a convention in Philadelphia, and Rand Paul's foreign policy hesitations.

Episode 2: Rand Paul's Bad Week, Hillary Clinton Makes News and The Bush Family Brand — On this week's TwentySixteen podcast, Tim Alberta, Shane Goldmacher and Kristin Roberts talk about Rand Paul's no-good week, Jeb Bush's general election strategy for the primary, Mike Huckabee's Iowa problem, Hillary Clinton's new hires, and Scott Walker's early - perhaps too early - rise.

National Journal Grows 'TwentySixteen' Initiative With New Podcast — With the 2016 presidential field quickly unfolding, National Journal has launched a new podcast, called TwentySixteen, devoted to delivering in-depth conversation on the candidates and their campaigns, as they strategize their way to the White House.
