While pundits have pegged the coronavirus pandemic as an “equalizer,” experts have begun to note just how differently Americans are feeling its impacts. On the pod this week, our hosts are joined by CAP Action’s Danyelle Solomon to talk about how Black Americans have borne the brunt of this health and economic crisis. Later, they speak with journalist David Daley about the Wisconsin primary, gerrymandering, and his new book: Unrigged: How Americans Are Battling Back to Save Democracy.
