The “now that you ask…” Conversation Series is hosted by Ingram, the man called the “most influential person in Tennessee politics who does not hold elected office.” The series brings Ingram’s bipartisan, common sense approach to government and politics straight to the table with discussions and debates featuring guests from across the business and political worlds.

The previous editions of “now that you ask…” have featured one-on-ones with Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam; Tennessee’s First Lady Crissy Haslam; John Seigenthaler, a leader in American journalism and politics; Beth Harwell, Tennessee’s first female Speaker of the House; and Loucas George, former producer of the ABC show “Nashville.”
