Live with Lori is a terrific political talker with a great twist. It takes our elected officials off the news set and puts them in a kitchen. This leads to a different kind television that really shakes up the same interview formula that we’re used to. We get to listen to our lawmakers discuss policy, while watching them navigate the kitchen and seeing a side of them that doesn’t show up on the campaign trail.
This week, Lori interviews Central Florida Congressman and longtime Tallahassee lawmaker Daniel Webster. The Congressman is a quiet and stoic guy, so it’s a welcome switch to see him do this program. He’s also a big family man, a grandfather, and I couldn’t think of a better guest for Thanksgiving week.
You can watch the show below and please checkout their website HERE. It airs on Sun Sports available on Bright House Networks (check your local listings)
They’ve interviewed a lot of local lawmakers this season, such as State Reps. David Santiago, Joe Saunders, and State Senator Andy Gardiner.
Who’s next? Webster’s former foe and current colleague Alan Grayson. You wont want to miss that.

I’m a fan of the “Live with Lori” Political Cooking Show, that’s shown every Wednesday Morning on Sun Sports (check local listings). Mostly because I take in and participate in hours of political programming every week, and it gets tedious at times.
Double Boxes. Intro, issue, 3 questions, close. Commercials. Next Guest.
There is nothing wrong with that but Loris’ show gets important lawmakers from the state, puts them in a kitchen (a room where some of them aren’t always comfortable in), puts them to work, and holds an insightful political conversation.
The show has been featuring a lot of lawmakers from Central Florida. Recently, State Representatives Joe Saunders – (D) Orlando, and David Santiago – (R) Deltona and this week it’s a pretty big guest. Future Senate President Andy Gardiner prepares Tuscan Steak with Roasted Veggies.
Have a watch and don’t forget to visit the show’s website “>HERE.
In the coming weeks, Live with Lori will feature two very influential lawmakers from Central Florida, Congressman Daniel Webster from (R) Winter Garden, and Controversial House Rep. Alan Grayson (D) Orlando (you definitely won’t want to miss that one).
