Subscribe:


Call them advocates, activists, or “democracy’s little helpers,” there are some folks who pay extra attention to policy issues and inform other voters. But now the time they’d spend helping people is being spent trying to save democracy. We talk to seven plaintiffs in a lawsuit against three insurrection supporters in Wisconsin’s congressional delegation. Guests: Jim Kurz, Cheryl Maranto, Rick Bechen, Paul Demain, James Botsford, Dan Russler, and Lisa Mueller.
