Is partisan gerrymandering illegal? In the second installment of our gerrymandering series we look at a Supreme Court case that could reshape how we draw political boundaries.
Black Representation In North Carolina
A decades long debate has raged over how to ensure minorities have a voice in America. In the third installment of our series, we look at racial gerrymandering.
Competitive Elections In Arizona
The number of competitive congressional elections has fallen dramatically in recent decades. Arizona tried to combat that trend.

wi gerrymeanderin epi
wi is my State. these people fighting for us to end or stabilize gerrymandering in WI need to get the word out on a regular basis. i realize that was an old podcast epi i just listened to but that is a huge problem n WI. no dissemination of info to all of the State. no change is ever going to come if those fighting don’t get the word out to not just large cities which i am n madison and hear very little about the fight actually but you have to get those small towns involved. republicans cheat to win. democrats need to push the truth out there be it via social media, email campaigns, hard copy mailers, dems are bad at this. we are the worst fighters ever.
I enjoy it a lot. Educational and interesting at the same time.
Great episode on Gerrymandering
One of the biggest problems in American Democracy explained perfectly. Simple to understand and with great detail.
