Politics in America is transforming. We’re using the lessons learned working with The Lincoln Project and embarking on a new series to deepen our understanding of who we are, how we got here, and how we rebuild without repeating the mistakes of the past. Ron Steslow hosts academics, behavioral economists, social psychologists, politicos, philosophers, anthropologists, journalists, poets, and storytellers—and more—to discuss America’s political present and future and dive into the deeper problems we face as a nation.

Am based in the UK 🇬🇧 and I love the Lincoln project.Keep up the good work.But your own your own now Ron and enjoy your new pod 👋👋👋
I am from a different country but find this podcast tackles all the topics of the week and break it down well.
Thank you, Lincoln Project, for your courage in helping rid the world of the scourge of Trump and showing that some things matter more than tribalism. You all sounded so dejected on the election night podcast, but I hope now he is gone in disgrace you can recognise your achievement.
