    • Politics

On this episode, we revisit Baker v. Carr, the landmark 1962 case that led to a "reapportionment revolution" while ensuring minorities had equal representation in state legislatures across the country. 

Later, we chat with Shanna Hughey, president of ThinkTennessee, a Nashville-based nonpartisan think tank about gerrymandering.

And as usual, we discuss the latest news of the week, including Rep. Gloria Johnson's plans to file a resolution during the upcoming special session that seeks to expel Rep. David Byrd from the legislature.
