Election Wrap-Up Special

Who won? Who lost? Are we still a democracy? All we know is that everyone is happy and absolutely no one is questioning the results.

In the lead up to the midterms, the media was all in on the narrative that a Red Tsunami of Blood was going to sweep over the entire country and drown what was left of our divided democracy. And yet, despite the dire predictions, election night was… maybe a little heavy on guys frantically doing on-air math, but otherwise very normal. In our Special Election Wrap-Up Show, we’re joined by several guests who tell us what voting was like on the ground in some of the most contested counties, what it’s like to have scraped through in a closely fought race, and how the media’s coverage of elections needs to change to spare us all the agony and be more constructive.
