The Bumbling US Insurrection Special Episode

In this special episode, we dedicate the entire podcast to discussing the events and implications on what happened in Washington on January 6th, 2021. This is a wide-ranging conversation that goes well beyond the headlines – hitting on everything from the role of race in policing demonstrations, to the benefits and costs of free speech in today’s media landscape.

We also discuss the impact of the Georgia senate race results on Biden’s agenda moving forward, the Republican party, and the power that each Democratic Senator now holds.
