Julie Varner Walsh

This first episode of “More Than Politics” is an introduction to the ideas behind the podcast: the personal and professional stories that brought the host to this point, and the political philosophy those stories engendered in her.

Julie Varner Walsh’s life has always centered around politics and her Catholic faith, and that has made for some strange combinations. Raised Republican, she worked mostly with Democrats when she was a lobbyist for the Catholic Church on poverty, immigration, and health care matters. Today she finds herself politically homeless, but not politically aimless. Walsh has found purpose in encouraging people to look beyond labels, to focus more on the moral implications of politics than the partisan horse race.
