Extremism in the State House with David Pepper
In the aftermath of the Supreme Court’s recent controversial rulings, a lot of attention has been placed on State Legislatures all across the country. Congress is too divided to pass laws that meet the moment and the Supreme Court is exercising raw judicial power the role of the statehouse is becoming more consequential than ever. Justice Alito said topics like abortion should be sent back to the states; but when the statehouses are incubating extremism – who are we sending it back to? Hillari Lombard sits down with David Pepper, the author of Laboratories for Autocracy, to discuss the corruption and extremism plaguing state legislatures all across the country. They discuss the risk state legislatures pose to democracy and most importantly what we can all do to stop it.

Fresh perspective - always learn something new
I like this podcast a lot. I always learn something new and it’s nice to be able to hear about politics without feeling like you’re being fed rhetoric or spin. MORE FOREIGN POLICY EPS PLEASE
Just what I’ve wanted to hear
I recently discovered this podcast and I really enjoy it. I was raised a conservative republican but like the host I’m tired of what has turned into hatred on both sides of the isle . I still hold my beliefs but I also know that this country was founded on compromise and we’ve forgotten how to do that now. I believe the middle ground is the right ground to stand on if anything ever gets accomplished again and this podcast holds to that belief.
Entertaining and hits the right questions
Political podcasts can get either boring or toxic but this one is promising. Host knows her stuff and is funny while she does it. She also doesn’t mess around with questions she asks her guests, either the right or the left. Podcast sticks to its name and keeps it in the middle.
