Just kidding—it really is us back so soon. We’re impressed by the level of protests. Is there something else going on, though? Today’s is a wide-ranging discussion eventually leading to talk about reforming the Electoral College and making it easier to vote, not harder. We even have comments! Jason closes out this episode with a non-political anecdote.
Watch out for the first 2Political Lite, coming soon to this podcast feed! (subscribers to the podcast will get them automatically)
Correction: Arthur misspoke: He took Chuck Schumer to task for promoting a “Top-Two Primary”, not for advocating awarding Electoral Votes by Congressional District. Coincidentally, however, the better solution to both would be the Alternative Vote.
Everyone’s welcome to leave a comment—agree or disagree!
