On a new bonus episode available every Thursday, Trey answers listener questions about politics, ideology, life, and more.

This week, Trey is asked why he left the United States House of Representatives, why lawmakers no longer discuss the national debt, and why he was inspired to write his most recent book, Doesn’t Hurt to Ask: Using the Power of Questions to Successfully Communicate, Connect, and Persuade.
