A political scientist discusses other national storylines associated with Tuesday’s final day of voting in the general election. And we talk with a journalist about how a divided electorate can come together moving forward.

Featured in this Show

  • Analysis Of The Presidential Election

    A political scientist shares what we know about results of the presidential election, and what information is still outstanding.

  • Can We Come Together After This? Finding Unity In The Great Divide

    We talk with a guest who says the ‘us versus them’ mentality many Americans has taken on, and evidenced in the election results, is fueled by a distorted, cartoonish understanding of those of the other party. Our windows of viewing the world have gotten too small; our guest tells us how we can work to see others for what they really are rather than the images we’ve accepted.
