Can we make 2020 something more than a civil war between Democrats and Republicans? That’s the challenge that has inspired this podcast by Lawrence Lessig. Without doubting the urgent need to defeat our current President, Lessig lays out a strategy that leverages the common ground that unites America, to the end of fixing our rigged and broken democracy. Drawing upon the history of other moments of fundamental change in America, Lessig maps a strategy that steps above our partisan divide. It is a moonshot, no doubt. But it is the one shot that could get us beyond the pathological division that destroys our government today. This is the conversation that the politicians won’t give us. And that’s precisely why we citizens must begin it now.

A gem

Republican? Democrat? Unaffiliated? Doesn’t matter. What changes do you want to see in America? Free university? End welfare? Doesn’t matter. Nothing matters unless you have the ear of Congress and none of us do. Congress spends all their time sucking up to billionaire campaign funders who, in the end, get whatever they want. Changing this inherently corrupted system is Lessig’s focus. He speaks clearly and elegantly and his message deserves to be heard by all.

Need to take more control of interviews

I was a supporter of professor Lessig during his campaign in 2016 and am a support of the his efforts. Ninety percent of the time, or more, I think they do an amazing job. If I were to offer one criticism is that when they have more partisan or politically active guests (people running, have run, or are currently in office) they can loose control of the interview and their guest will continually criticize them heir political opponents, individuals or parties, and go completely off topic from democracy reform. If they took more control in those instances, it would be a that much greater if podcast. But I still listen to it every week and support the cause!

Unparalleled clarity

I found this podcast through an interview on Joe Rogan. Lawrence details the systemic governmental impediments to representation of the majority of Americans, and the historical basis for the changes needed.

Highly recommend.
