Episode 45

I found this podcast to be extremely informative and educational! The contrast between California’s and North Carolina’s voting laws and voting districts brought a new perspective to the table. There was a clear distinction between the liberal and conservative policy approaches and how the two various sets of policies impact voters from minority backgrounds. I would highly recommend this podcast to all interested in gaining more knowledge about the law and various perspectives of the law!
