The demographics of the United States have changed dramatically since our system of government was designed. We talk to an author about ways the U.S. could change to ensure the will of the people continues to matter. We also learn about the surprising impact of religious movements on the food we eat.

How the foods we eat were shaped by religious movements
Food has a long history of helping people establish and celebrate their spiritual beliefs. We talk to the author of a new book looking at the historical connections between what we eat and what we believe.
Is American democracy still the best system?
While the United States and its constitution were once a template for how nations might establish their own democracies, our country has undergone massive demographic changes since its birth. We talk to the author of a new book about how the U.S. has failed to adapt its constitution as other countries have, and how it could result in the end of our democracy as we know it.
