    From WIRED Politics Lab: How Election Deniers Are Weaponizing Tech To Disrupt November

    Election deniers are mobilizing their supporters and rolling out new tech to disrupt the November election. These groups are already organizing on hyperlocal levels, and learning to monitor polling places, target election officials, and challenge voter rolls. And though their work was once fringe, its become mainstreamed in the Republican Party. Today on WIRED Politics Lab, we focus on what these groups are doing, and what this means for voters and the election workers already facing threats and harassment.Listen to and follow WIRED Politics Lab here.Be sure to subscribe to the WIRED Politics Lab newsletter here.

Great listening

Wonderful content with a rich array of current topics. I wish they doubled their output.

Love it

I love the content but mostly I’m here for this beautiful cast of characters. These are actually my favorite people to have living /talking in my head.

Can’t Stop Listening!

I absolutely adore this podcast. Not only do I enjoy the journalism, the topics, the discussion, the though provoking probes, etc., but I have also become emotionally invested in the cast members. I sincerely enjoy tuning in to hear more of their interpersonal banter, witty quips and each of their individual view points shared in an intellectual, yet consistently humorous fashion.
So glad I stumbled upon this podcast. Thank you for producing!
