Know Your Limit (with Prof. Richard L. Hasen)

This week DeRay, Brittany, Clint, and Sam discuss Seattle’s smartphone voting, Florida’s felon fines, Houston’s cancer clusters, and criticism of the 1619 Project. Then, DeRay sits down with election specialist Richard L. Hasen to examine frightening gaps in our voting security, regional pockets of governmental incompetence, and why he thinks we’re in the midst of democracy’s meltdown. Also, please watch Matthew A. Cherry’s Oscar-nominated animated short film Hair Love.
